This conference will bring together academics, practicing instructors, graduate students, and others interested in language education. The fields of inquiry within language education are varied ranging from linguistics and assessment to educational technology and teacher education and we welcome you to share, learn, network and enjoy the 2012 conference. The conference and symposium keynote speakers, Steven Pinker, Michael McCarthy and Penny Ur are internationally acclaimed and not to be missed.

Teacher educators and graduate students may be particularly interested in the Graduate Students Symposium taking place October 11.

Also on October 11 are the pre-conference Symposia and Workshops from leaders in our field cover a range of timely topics. Furthermore there are several excursions in and around Kamloops prior to the conference and some fantastic social activities.
