Cercles – the European Confederation of Language Centres in Higher Education – will organise the XVII CercleS International Conference 2022, “The Future of Language Education in an Increasingly Digital World: Embracing Change”, which will take place on 15-17 September 2022. The event is hosted by ReCLes.pt, the Association of Language Centres in Higher Education, in Portugal, at ISCAP – The Porto Accounting and Business School, Porto, Portugal.
The conference, with its diversity of strands, will enable teachers, researchers, and managerial staff in HEIs to discuss a spectrum of cultural and linguistically challenging contexts. Over three full days, we hope to engage in sharing best practices for teaching and learning to inspire and identify areas of opportunity and enhancement. We aim to contribute to the dialogue on the possible futures of language education, while duly recognising the impact of the digital world.
