Meeting Description:

Enhancing and Advancing Teacher Education: Professional Identities, Communities, Beliefs, and Practices

In the spirit of promoting self-driven, collaborative, meaningful, and sustainable professional development, this year's Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture focuses on the professional identities, communities, beliefs, and practices of educators and how they can all be harnessed to enhance and advance the lifelong learning we recognize as the ideal meaning of the phrase ''teacher education''.

Our goal is to involve pre- and in-service teachers, teacher educators, administrators, researchers, and other professionals at all stages of their careers in a multidirectional sharing of expertise and experiences that will contribute to future exploratory practice and professional growth.

We are honored to welcome the following plenary speakers: https://conference.viu.edu/cllc/plenaries/speakers

- Dr. Elaine Horwitz -- Supporting teacher autonomy through learner-centered teacher education: An example with language teachers
- Dr. Rashi Jain -- Towards a translingually responsive pedagogy: Implications for teacher education, practice, and research
- Dr. Joy Peyton -- Cross-national, multi-language professional development experiences: Challenges and success stories from teachers of adult immigrants
