Washington Association for Language Teaching

Conferences & Workshops


There are numerous workshops and professional development opportunities held across the state. Please check the Calendar for titles and contact information for registration.


Mark your calendars now to attend the WAFLT-COFLT bistate conference, Reaching Global Competence, October 9-11 in Vancouver, WA at the Hilton Hotel and Convention Center! Friday's keynote speaker will be 2013 ACTFL Teacher of the Year Noah Geisel. Noah has been teaching high school English, Spanish and Technology for 13 years. An addict of sharing and collaborating with other teachers, he is a constant on Twitter and a contributing writer to the education blog TeachPaperless.com. His presentations have been selected Best of Colorado, Best of SWCOLT and Best of CSC. He is a traveler, learner and hardcore fan of Duke Basketball.


Thanks to the support of ACTFL, we will also be able to offer our pre-conference all-day workshop on Thursday, October 9. It will be available as a "stand-alone" workshop, or as an addition to regular conference registration. Watch this website for further information.


The Proposal Submission Form is now available. Proposals will be accepted until June 15, or until the program fills. WAFLT and COFLT depend on volunteer presenters to make this professional development opportunity possible. Please consider sharing your ideas with your colleagues in this way! Click here.
