The Texas Language Education Research Conference (TexLER) is now accepting proposals for the annual conference on February 19-20, 2016. This is an annual conference that brings together researchers, educators, and students in the fields of foreign language education, TEFL/TESL (Teaching English as a Foreign or Second Language), linguistics, and applied linguistics.

TexLER welcomes research studies and practice-oriented presentations that clearly establish strong connections between theory and practice in diverse contexts. Our goal is to offer an interdisciplinary forum for all those interested in research findings with implications for the classroom, as well as those interested in pedagogical approaches to language learning grounded on empirical findings.

Proposals can be submitted through . Please note that early submission deadline is November 1st, 2015 and the final submission date is December 4th, 2015.

Interested participants are encouraged to submit a proposal for one of the following session types: Poster Presentation; 20-minute Research-Based or Practice-Oriented Presentation; 45-minute Research-Based or Practice-Oriented Presentation

The plenary speakers for this conference are Dr. Ana Celia Zentella, Dr. Margarita Machado-Casas, and Dr. Deborah Palmer.
