The theme of the 2018-19 AFLTA Conference is Creating Core Community. Creating community while focusing on the core practices of language teaching and learning will be at the heart of this conference. In addition to our breakout sessions and lunch, we are thrilled to host Greta Lungaard as this year's keynote speaker. During her years in public education, Greta‚Äôs instruction, planning, and leadership always focused on student learning, and in her current work, her focus remains on proficiency-focused curriculum design and developing strategies leading to teacher and learner efficacy.    Regular conference registration includes six (6) hours of professional development on Friday with on-site lunch included. Thursday offers three (3) hours of professional development in a pre-conference language immersion workshop in French or Spanish for an additional fee.
