- Presentations will provide language educators and graduate students (within the Iowa City community and beyond) with new findings in the field of applied linguistics that may be applicable to their own research and practice.
- Presenters and attendees will seek to bridge the divide between research and language instructional practice in order to empower bilingual educators in higher education and K-12 education.
