January 17-18, 2018
Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL) offers a framework for designing powerful, culturally contextualized experiences that create opportunities for learners to use their language to address real world needs that are personally meaningful to them. The PBLL Symposium brings together language educators, researchers, and innovators to explore the potential of PBLL to enhance and transform language education and provides an excellent introduction to this topic.
This unique, FREE online event will provide attendees with a broad overview of PBLL, engaging interactions with world language teachers who have implemented PBLL in their classrooms, and the chance to network with professionals who are passionate about this topic. The symposium format makes it easy to integrate into busy schedules. Four interactive sessions are distributed across two days (i.e., two sessions per day).
The symposium registration deadline (January 15) has passed.
