Fall Conference

Beyond Languages – October 2020


Each year, FLAVA gathers educators, administrators, and scholars of Virginia’s world language programs and supports their professional development needs and interests in teaching, technology, pedagogy, and learning. Our last Fall Conference featured over 160 engaging sessions and approximately 650 participants.


This year, our conference went virtual. Thank you to all who attended and those who worked to make it such a success! Our members truly made the conference what it was. 


Thank you to our generous exhibitors! You can visit them virtually here.


Congratulations to our award recipients! Learn about them all here

World Language Teachers: The Global Liaisons We Need – Amanda Seewald

As we continue to stretch the boundaries of education and empower our students to think global, world language educators have a unique and important role to play. What can you do to bring true global citizenship to your classroom, your school, and your community through language education? Join Amanda Seewald as she invites us to consider the possibilities and the tools that language educators have to make the global links our students need as we navigate the challenges along our paths.
