EPIC-Lang 2023 Conference Registration

Reimagined Critical Pedagogy: Resistance and Solidarity in Language Classrooms

Date and Location
Friday, April 28 (remote and in-person) to Saturday, April 29, 2023 (remote)
Please register via Zoom here
Conference Theme
This conference explores the integration of critical pedagogy into our Modern Language programs through building EDIA (equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessible) based Instruction, Content and Assessments. While re-imagined language classes focus more on teaching academic and critical thinking skills rather than language specific skills, the current transformed language learning and teaching landscape compels us to make our language instruction more meaningful and diverse in their objectives.
