MATSOL 2020 Conference

Framingham Hotel & Conference Center | Framingham MA

Proposal due by 11:59 PM on Monday December 2, 2019

The MATSOL 2020 Conference brings together educators of English learners from across Massachusetts to learn, network, and share expertise.

MATSOL encourages engaging, interactive presentations that make the theory to practice connection. Successful proposals include practical classroom activities informed by current research and pedagogy, demonstrations of successful instructional practices, examinations of current issues in education, and research that informs educators in the Massachusetts context. Presentations should engage the audience through hands-on or interactive activities when possible. 

Presentations may address audiences from all program types including PK-12 schools (public, charter and independent), adult and workplace education, community college ESL, Intensive English Programs (IEPs), private language schools, and pre-service and in-service teacher education.

Presentations take place on Wednesday, May 27 - Friday May 29, 2020.
