Registrations for the MLTAWA State Conference Future Perfect? are now open to all language teachers and educators.

We are excited to bring this conference to you with its focus on engaging students in language learning at a time of global change and challenge.

Highlights of the program include keynote speakers, Adelle Wilkes from Scotch College, Perth, with a focus on future capabilities; Heike Philp, an expert in the field of online teaching and learning, who will be live streamed from Europe; Nathan Harvey, President of the AFMLTA; and Professor Rhonda Oliver from Curtin University, who will present the Nick Norris Memorial Lecture. A further highlight is the panel discussion which will entertain, be thought provoking and present diverse perspectives. The two days will also feature a variety of motivational presentations and workshops by experts from primary, secondary and tertiary fields, and include presentations on the Western Australian Curriculum: Languages. Many single language associations’ symposiums are also not to be missed as these will feature a range of presentations and workshops in language.

The draft conference program will be made available by early March with full details of the keynotes, parallel sessions and symposiums.

Delegates can choose to register for the whole conference, which includes the high tea guest speaker and panel discussion event, or one day only. There is also the option of attending the special high tea event separately.  Full program attendees will have priority to attend the high tea. There are only 100 places available for the high tea guest speaker and panel discussion so you are encouraged to register early.

There is a special accommodation price at the Esplanade Hotel for delegates who book before the 18 March: $150 per person per night.  Book directly with the Esplanade Hotel here.

The Early bird registration for the conference is available until 10 March.
