Concurrent with the conference on Saturday, we will host two workshop sessions that aim to provide participants with ideas, resources, strategies, and practical advice for (i) teaching Spanish language courses where both heritage learners and foreign language learners are enrolled, as well as for (ii) the creation (or improvement) of quality language programs that deliver the most optimal learning environment for Spanish heritage learners. Some of the topics that will be discussed include: grouping strategies, peer collaboration, provision of feedback, placement issues, and evaluation of program outcomes.

All student presenters will be eligible for consideration for a most promising scholar award.
