2017 Summer Conference

2017 FLAND Summer Conference

August 7-9, 2017

Grand Forks & Winnipeg

Mark you calendars now for the 2017 FLAND Summer Conference! 

    The 2017 FLAND Summer Conference for Foreign Language Teachers is a conference for all current, retired, and pre-service foreign language teachers who are members of FLAND. The goal of the summer conference is to bring local and regional foreign language teachers together to participate in professional development sessions on current best practices in foreign language education. 

    This summer's conference, “Utilizing Travel to Enhance Foreign Language Instruction and Learning," will actively engage participants in activities that will prepare them to be group leaders of foreign or domestic travel. The conference will highlight how to plan meaningful travel activities for students and explore ways to get students engaged with travel destinations and cultures and use their language skills when traveling. We will also examine our role as Foreign Language teachers in the understanding and fostering of human rights around the globe. 

    To immerse ourselves in the above, the 2017 FLAND Summer Conference will take place in Grand Forks the first day then travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba, for the second and third days. Conference participants will engage in exploration of the cultures of Canada that including historic French-Canadian culture, the cultures of new Canadians from around the world as represented in Folklorama, and a visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. 

    The 2017 FLAND Summer Conference will be offered for one credit of continuing education pending approval. Information about the conference and registration forms will also be posted via FLAND's listserv and Facebook page. 

    The FLAND Summer Conference is a great way to connect with other Foreign Language teachers and grow professionally in the realm of Foreign Language teaching.
