  • Share their knowledge, experience, unique perspective, and educational best practices with peers;
  • Discuss and explore issues related to the science and technology of foreign language education;
  • Develop networks of teachers to create communities of practices,
  • Reduce duplication of effort in areas such as curriculum design, course delivery and assessment.

Presentations related specifically to Asian languages are encouraged. The three main themes are: Instructional Technology and Design, Innovation in Teaching Approaches, and Innovation and Accountability in Language Assessment and Placement.
