Call for Proposals

Proposal Deadline: April 15, 2022

Looking for an opportunity to reflect on your practice while providing professional development for others? Tell us and show us how you apply specific criteria from the Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning (TELL) in your classroom or program. We are looking for short presentations (no more than 30 minutes) that celebrate your strengths as a language educator.

PEARLL is a Title VI Language Resource Center at the
National Foreign Language Center at the University of Maryland.

I found the NFLC Virtual Summit more convenient and efficient than the in-person summits.

Thanks for offering this early enough in the summer to give enough time to try out ideas before the school year starts.

The best conference ever, very rewarding, comfortable, diverse, and relevant.

You did an amazing job of delivering probably the best conference I have ever attended. The presenters are the best in the business right now — I am starstruck! The information communicated to the mediocre teacher like me was presented in a way that I can actually see myself applying to my teaching practice, making me a better teacher, and bringing my students closer to proficiency. Well done! Bravo!

I am really appreciating this conference. I have attended a lot of webinars about online tools, etc. but this was a very well-rounded conference, with speakers who focused on ideas or theory, others on specific tools or techniques, and many on how to achieve a particular language goal with your students. There was really something for everyone, and for me, it was inspirational.

It was a great experience! I was able to start creating some of my activities for that upcoming school year with the strategies and tools the presenters shared.
