Overview Innovative Language Education Symposium



Overview

The symposium brings together national and international leaders in language education to map out their visions of what constitutes innovative language education today and share and discuss the pressing national and international issues surrounding language education.

It offers participants the opportunity to learn about the latest research in Asian language teaching and hands-on opportunities to learn about developments in language teaching pedagogy.

Through this study of policy, research and pedagogy, the symposium will further debate about how Australia could set its course to lead the way forward in language education in the Asian Century.
