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!
