Special Conference Events

Just because we are meeting virtually doesn’t mean that we won’t have lots of networking opportunities and our fun IALLT traditions! Check the conference schedule for special sessions where you can play games with your colleagues, take a break with some chair or desk yoga, or try your hand at a new recipe. The IALLT Lounge will be open all day for you to drop in to ask questions, make new connections, or visit with old friends. As a special bonus, our colleagues from JASAL (Japan Association for Self-Access Learning) will be hosting our closing event in the online platform Wonder.

There will be a small fee for two of our special events, so be sure to include them when you register for the conference.
