NAACLT Conf. SMO June 2010 - "Celtic isles of language'

Unread post by faoileag » Fri Dec 11, 2009 8:57 pm

Announcing the 2010 Conference of the North American Association of Celtic Language Teachers (NAACLT)

"Hands Across the Celtic Isles of Language"

Like the Scottish Isles, the various Celtic communities are geographically separated from one another but are increasingly reaching out to share strategies, success stories, advice, and friendship. Encouraging and fostering Celtic interconnectedness is an important part of NAACLT's mission.

The conference will be held June 9-12, 2010 at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, a Scottish Gaelic medium college located on the Isle of Skye in northwest Scotland (http://www.smo.uhi.ac.uk/beurla/).

Keynote speakers: Caoimhín Ó Donnaíle (Sabhal Mòr Ostaig) and Mairead Dhòmhnallach (Sabhal Mòr Ostaig)

We are now accepting abstracts for twenty-minute talks in any of the following areas:


* Methods, techniques, Best Practices in teaching Celtic languages
* Incorporating Celtic cultures into the classroom or learning experience
* Application of computer technology to Celtic language teaching or research
* Pedagogical materials: what works, what doesn't
* Topics in Celtic linguistics, sociolinguistics, and Second Language Acquisition (SLA)
* Language policy and planning in the Celtic world
* Promotion or appreciation of Celtic languages and cultures

Please send abstracts of between 200-300 words to Kevin Rottet (krottet@indiana.edu) by April 25, 2010.


We offer a $100 scholarship for financial assistance to partially offset the cost of attending the conference. If you are interested in presenting a paper and would benefit from this modest scholarship, simply indicate on your registration form that you would like to be considered for the scholarship.

More information about NAACLT and sample programs from previous conferences can be found on our website (www.naaclt.org).

Now there are are some salient and meaty topics there - and it has the makings of a boisterous conference if a wide range of contributors (or even a few folk from on here! :spors: ) actively participate. Wish I could be there!
