TexFLEC 2014--Shaping the Future of Foreign/Second Language Education to Cross Cultural Boundaries: Integrating Theory and Practice
Sat, February 15, 2014 • 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM • CLA building, various rooms
Keynote speaker: Dr. Dwight Atkinson, Purdue University
The Texas Foreign Language Education Conference (TexFLEC) at The University of Texas at Austin is an annual conference that brings together researchers, educators, and students in the fields of foreign language education, TEFL/TESL (Teaching English as a Foreign or Second Language), linguistics, and applied linguistics.
TexFLEC provides conference participants with the opportunity to share diverse up-to-date ideas. Bridging the gap between research and practice is an inevitable challenge in the field of foreign/second language pedagogy.
TexFLEC unites scholars and educators from diverse contexts who strive to connect research findings to classroom practices, thus shaping the future direction of language education. TexFLEC welcomes research studies and practice-oriented presentations that clearly establish strong connections between theory and practice in diverse contexts. Our goal is to offer an interdisciplinary forum for all those interested in research findings with implications for the classroom as well as those interested in pedagogical approaches to language learning grounded on empirical findings.
