Language Futures is the sixth biennial conference organised by LLAS Centre for languages, linguistics and area studies (LLAS), The University Council of Modern Languages (UCML) and the Association of University Language Centres (AULC). It aims to bring together language teachers and researchers from across languages and related disciplines. It will be of interest to those in higher education and related sectors including secondary schools and further education. It is also aimed at representatives of business, language 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.
The conference will address five key themes relating to the current and emerging landscape of languages in education:
- Engaging with policy
- Learning and teaching
- Graduate skills and employability
- Internationalisation and mobility
- Transition into higher education
