The 2020 Duke Language Symposium "Innovative Practices in Language Learning and Teaching" is sponsored by the Trinity Language Council at Duke University with the mission of bringing together scholars, students, and practitioners across languages, linguistics, and education to explore innovative practices in language learning and teaching. This inaugural symposium features 13 presentations from Duke language faculty in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, English for International Students, Germanic Languages and Literature, Romance Studies, and Slavic and Eurasian Studies. Our two keynote speakers will present on research in language teaching and learning. Dr. Stacey Margarita Johnson (Vanderbilt University) will present "Transformative Language Teaching Practices," in which she explores how task- and lesson-level strategies can promote deep, meaningful learning for language learners. Dr. Elizabeth Miller (University of North Carolina at Charlotte) will share her research on "The Emotional Labor of Language Teaching: Experienced Teachers' Accounts of Emotional Challenges, Rewards and Management Strategies." The symposium is free and open to the public. Attendees will learn about cutting-edge teaching strategies and delve into current research in world language pedagogy.
