AULC Conference 2021 registrations open

We are delighted to announce that the registration for the AULC Conference 2021 is now live on Eventbrite:


The 22nd annual conference of the Association of University Language Communities’ in the UK & Ireland (AULC) will take place over 3 days (Mon 29 – Wed 31 March 2021), and is this year hosted by the University of Leeds, online.

The conference title is [Digital] Practitioners, Pedagogy and Policy, and the provisional programme outline will be available on the CercleS website under the relevant news item. This is in the process of being updated and will soon be available via a conference website.

The aim of the conference is to enable language centre practitioners, language educators and scholars to present and discuss their practice, pedagogies and scholarship/research around these three broad strands of language education in HE.

Unlike previous years, from 2021 onwards there will be a small registration fee:

£15.00 for members of AULC, and for members of CercleS (please register with your employer email address)
£25.00 non-members

No registration fee is required from presenters, nor for colleagues employed by the host institution, University of Leeds

We hope that by holding the conference over 3 days, delegates will have more time to peruse the pre-recorded talks in advance, and post comments and questions.

There will be opportunities to participate in some live presentations, synchronous discussions and workshops. A small exhibitor engagement space will also be available, with further details to be announced in due course.
We are committed to promote state of the art language teaching and learning, as well as research
in Higher Education in and for a multilingual Europe and world.
Please join us in this fascinating endeavour.
