The Texas Language Education Research Organization (TexLER)

The mission of the Texas Language Education Research Organization (TexLER) is to provide its participants with a space to collaborate, discuss, and share ideas in the field of linguistics and foreign and second language teaching. We organize and host a yearly conference that provides the opportunity for researchers and educators from different contexts to discuss their ideas and share experiences. TexLER welcomes research studies and practice-oriented presentations that clearly establish connections between theory and practice in diverse contexts. Our goal is to offer an interdisciplinary forum for those interested in research findings with implications for the classroom as well as for those interested in pedagogical approaches to language learning, grounded in empirical findings. We welcome all educators and researchers to participate in this conference and become part of our ongoing critical discourse towards language learning.
