2018 ICTFL Fall Conference Call for Sessions

“Explore More of the Core”

 Illinois Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages     Fall Conference 2018

October 26 - 27 • NIU Naperville Conference Center

Selection Criteria: ICTFL is committed to offering conference sessions that are current and are presented in a professional manner.  ICTFL endeavors to provide professional development that produces credit toward the renewal of teaching licenses.  The committee is seeking a balanced program on the teaching of classical and modern languages, including heritage languages, as well as professional concerns of language educators.  Special consideration will be given to proposals emphasizing the practical application (specifically the “how-to-do-it”) of the Core Practices emphasized at the 2017 Fall Conference.  These were 90% in Target, Grammar in Context, and Feedback.

Procedure:  The committee will weigh the merits of all proposals and determine which are most appropriate to the program’s theme. By April 30, the status of all proposals will be acknowledged.

Successful Proposals:  Up to 2 co-presenters will each receive a one-year complimentary ICTFL membership beginning July 1 of the conference year.  As with ACTFL and Central States, it is the policy of this conference to require presenters to pay the registration fee and their own travel expenses.  If a presenter is not registered by the regular registration deadline, the presentation may not be included in the final program.
