An online conference
Due to the global coronavirus situation, this year’s FEL conference will take place online. The conference will have talks in three different time-zone areas to cater for presenters and attendees in the Americas; Africa, Europe, Middle East; and the Asia-Pacific area. Information about the conferencing tool, registration and other practicalities will be made available from the main conference website.
There is no conference fee but all participants are encouraged to make a donation to FEL instead.
About the conference
The theme of this year’s FEL conference is teaching and learning materials (including primers, grammars, dictionaries, textbooks, websites, language documentation and other audiovisual material, apps, etc.) for, in, and about endangered languages. We have included presentations that focus on the types of pedagogical resources that are appropriate for endangered language situations (including the teaching and learning of speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, as relevant), and the roles they can play in the support for and revitalisation of endangered languages. Presentations will also explore how such resources can contribute to the status and profile of a language, and what practical and pedagogical solutions and resources work best for first, heritage, and second language speakers and learners.
