Alabama World Languages Association

The mission of the Alabama World Languages Association is to motivate educators to contribute to
and to advocate for improved world language education for all students at all levels.


Teach 2 INCLUDE's annual conference is June 15, 2023. It is a conference for faculty in K-12 and higher education institutions across North Alabama, explores the challenges surrounding diversity and inclusivity in the classroom and shares methods for making a difference. In 2023, the theme will be “Leading with World Languages”, celebrating the inclusiveness and diversity shown through the study of world languages and cultures.

We are honored that the Keynote Speaker is Dr. Krista Chambless for our 2023 "Teach 2 INCLUDE" conference; also, excited that AWLA Summer 2023 workshops* will be held at this conference as well.

Registration is free for AWLA members!

The 2023 conference theme explores the idea of language and technology at the crossroads. How are we, as language educators and center staff, using technology, social media, and multimedia to support the teaching and learning of languages? What do technological affordances mean for language advocacy and sustainability? What is unique about new (and even older) technologies and their creative users in the context of language teaching and learning? What innovations and new practices have interruptions in continuity of instruction (pandemic, storms, etc.) yielded?

Conference activities will take place at The Higgins Hotel and Conference Center in New Orleans. Register today!
