Conference Format
The conference will take place virtually over 5 days (4 hours per afternoon, Pacific time). It is conceived as a venue to foster and enact collective scholarship. As such, all conference participants will have the opportunity to co-create knowledge alongside language and culture studies practitioners from various backgrounds.

Conference Information
Based in DDGC’s Guiding Principles, this virtual conference will discuss and produce new outcomes and assessment protocols for our shared fields of work, so that we may implement them at our schools. Together, we will identify, exchange, and develop ambitious new knowledge around these key questions for our future curricula—at every level of the multilingual learning journey. We find that our larger national and international organizations do not offer resources adequate to this purpose, and we wish to foster a series of conversations that will do so. Focusing on program outcomes, learning outcomes, program assessments, and learning assessments, we invite participation from programs at all levels and languages.

Pre-Conference Reading Group
In order to facilitate ongoing conversation around the topic of outcomes, we will hold an opt-in monthly reading group, beginning in October. During each session, we will read one text and meet virtually to discuss its main ideas and how these intersect with the theme of the conference. Participants are encouraged to attend any reading group session they like to attend, but are not required to do so.

We will circulate a schedule for the reading group, listing times and reading schedule shortly after the submission deadline for the conference.
