Meeting Description:

The 2016 Community-College-Language conference will be held 6 May 2016 at Borough of Manhattan Community College (CUNY). Funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education, the conference focuses on the teaching and learning of languages at community colleges, and on language education in the various professional and educational communities that connect to community colleges.

Call for Papers:

The inaugural Community-College-Language conference focuses on two common intermediate-range goals of community college students: transfer to 4-year colleges, and entry into the global workforce.

Topics may include:

- Articulation agreements between community colleges and four-year colleges
- Assessment and alignment with institutional/national/international standards
- Internships and externships
- Community- and service-based language learning
- Language for Specific Purposes
- Program design
- Curriculum design
- Pedagogical materials
