The Subject Centre's fifth biennial conference for languages in higher education
The Languages in Higher Education Conference 2010 is the fifth biennial conference of the Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS).  It aims to bring language teachers and researchers together from across all areas of the languages curriculum to celebrate all that we have achieved so far and to share ideas on ways in which we can take languages forward into the next decade.  We are fortunate this year to have the support of the European Union funded Language Network for Quality Assurance (LanQua) which will bring a broader, European perspective to the conference.  

Call for papers
In recent years, languages educators have been at the forefront of innovative and creative approaches to supporting the discipline and enhancing the student learning experience.  However, these are challenging times for languages, which require ever more creative and strategic action in order to ensure that languages in all sectors of education thrive.

The conference will address some of the key areas and themes which cover pedagogy and the interface between teaching and research. It will be of interest to colleagues at all stages of their professional career and to both teaching and research staff in languages. It may also be of relevance to those involved in other sectors which border on higher education such as secondary schools, FE and adult education. It is also aimed at representatives of business, languages professions and any other employers who wish to develop closer links with education in the field of languages. It is intended as a forum for networking, sharing ideas and resources and exploring ways of meeting the challenges of sustaining good quality language education in today's highly competitive global market. 

The conference will take place in London on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd July 2010. This two-day conference is organised by the Subject Centre in partnership with LanQua and, with the support of CILT the National Centre for Languages, the University Council for Modern Languages (UCML) and the Association of University Language Centres (AULC).
