|Rethink and Reboot: Keeping your Program Relevant|
The theme for this year’s conference, Rethink and Reboot:
Keeping your Program Relevant should evoke thoughts, one to
rethink and reboot. We all strive to get our learners to the
prescribed level of proficiency within that content area. But how do
we keep our program relevant for our learners? From Program Review
and New Kentucky Standard for World Languages, it is time for us to
rethink and reboot and keep our program relevant. Besides the annual
fall conference proposal, another major focus of this year's
conference will be continuing growing and shaping the Showcase, both
regional and state, events.
|The 2013 KWLA Fall Conference
promises to be another outstanding professional learning experience.
We invite you to join us in Lexington from September 19-21
to hear success stories, discover challenges, and find solutions for
teaching world languages in today’s classroom. KWLA is proud to
offer you a wide variety of sessions and workshops touching all
levels of learning and covering numerous topics of second language
acquisition. You’ll leave the conference energized with ideas you
can use in the classroom and connections that will provide you
support throughout the year.
No presenters, no PowerPoints. (Un)Sessions are more social, more hands-on and a lot less formal than regular conference session, putting all attendees in the center of learning. Choose from one of seven participant-facilitated (meaning that the people who attend will generate the content of the session) session around the seven strands of the conference. Come to share, learn and connect with other teachers.
Get 12 ideas in one hour during fast-paced Power Share sessions that allow multiple participants to share technology ideas (links, apps, sites, resources) in brief five-minute show & tell mini-sessions. Get the latest and be inspired to bring more technology into your classroom. All conference attendees are invited to present. Simply sign-up for one of the slots at the registration desk.
