Celebrating Languages Without Borders (CLWB) 2020 to be Held Virtually

Given the ongoing travel restrictions and social distancing measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CASLT and the BCATML have decided to shift the CLWB 2020 conference to a virtual event instead.

Conference registration is temporarily closed so that the organizers can adjust the registration fees to align with the expected costs. Therefore, conference attendees will benefit from reduced fees.

The conference will be held on the originally scheduled dates of October 23 and 24, 2020.

Despite this adjustment, we fully intend to deliver a conference brimming with high quality professional learning. We are working towards delivering more than 100 sessions on current L2 research and innovative, exemplary classroom practices.

With this virtual conference, we will still be able to provide all attendees with the opportunity to meet, connect, and share high-impact strategies and experiences with colleagues from around the world without geographic barriers.

The Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers (CASLT) joins forces with the British Columbia Association of Teachers of Modern Languages (BCATML) to host Celebrating Languages Without Borders (CLWB)  2020. This premier national professional development conference for second language educators and stakeholders will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver, BC, on October 23–24, 2020. The preconference on October 22 will be at the same location.

CLWB 2020 will be a very exciting conference, offering a wide range of professional development sessions, keynotes, workshops, and exhibitors featuring the latest L2 educational resources and innovations. And did we mention the awesome networking opportunities?
