Call for Proposals!

Stephanie Wilker

In just a few months, Michigan State University English Language Center, in collaboration with National Geographic Learning, will be hosting its second annual Learning Symposium. Last year’s professional development event provided attendees with a wealth of information about content-based learning. This year’s Learning Symposium, slated for Saturday, April 12, is entitled The World in Words: Teaching and Learning Academic Vocabulary. Administrators are currently calling for proposals from any English teaching professional in the Great Lakes region. Presentations must be vocabulary-related and 45 minutes in length. The deadline for proposal submission is February 3. I attended last year’s event, and the experience was well above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend that anyone interested in ESOL attend the 2014 Learning Symposium!

Please contact the GSO at for more information from Austin Kaufmann, ELC Instructor and Learning Symposium Organizer.

Also, be sure to check out the new Learning Symposium website.
