IALLT Summit March 28-29, 2020

The IALLT Summit is held every even year to conduct the business of the organization, and to provide an opportunity for member input.  All IALLT members (or those who are interested in learning more about IALLT and becoming members) are encouraged to participate in discussions about IALLT publications, professional development activities, membership benefits, regional groups, work with other organizations, and many other topics of interest. Due to the cancellation of the SCOLT conference, all Summit sessions will be conducted online.

Saturday, March 28, 3:30-6:30pm CDT
Sunday, March 29, 9:00am-3:00pm CDT

There is no charge to participate in the IALLT Summit, but please register and indicate that you will be participating via Zoom. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to share the approximate times that you will be available to participate. This information will be used to create the final meeting schedule.

All sessions will take place at the Higgins Hotel in New Orleans, LA.


The biennial IALLT conference attracts participants world-wide and offers an international perspective into the future of educational technology for language and cultural learning. Our conferences are of particular interest to all language and culture instructors whether K-12 or post-secondary, to individuals affiliated with a media center or language lab, to developers of language technology, and to individuals interested in any facet of language learning technology. During pre-conference workshops, three days of sessions and panels, interactions in the exhibit hall, and special social events, attendees experience a unique form of professional development that is innovative, cutting-edge, practical, friendly, and just-in-time.

Language teachers are often misunderstood and isolated on their campus, and IALLT provides a supportive environment for anyone who struggles with best practices for incorporating technology into their language teaching. All levels of technology experience are welcome.

In non-conference years, there are other opportunities for IALLT members to gather. In addition to Regional IALLT meetings and IALLT presence at other language conferences, the IALLT Board and Council invite members to participate in the annual Summit planning meeting that takes place at the site for the next conference. IALLT also frequently partners with sister organization CALICO as participants and presenters in their annual conference.
