2021 Conference

Call for Proposals 

The Call for Proposals is open for the 2021 MATSOL Virtual Conference. We invite our members to submit proposals to present at the conference on June 1-4, 2021. The conference will take place online due to the ongoing pandemic.

The 2021 MATSOL Virtual Conference brings together educators of English Learners from across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to share expertise and best practices. The MATSOL conference audience will include teachers, administrators, and other educators in:

  • PK-12 schools (public, charter, independent)
  • Pre-service & in-service teacher education
  • Community College ESL programs
  • Intensive English Programs (college IEPs)
  • Adult and workplace education
  • Private Language Schools

MATSOL encourages engaging, interactive presentations that make the theory to practice connection. Successful proposals include practical classroom activities informed by current research and pedagogy, demonstrations of successful instructional practices, examinations of current issues in education, and research that informs educators in the Massachusetts context. Presentations should engage the audience through hands-on or interactive activities when possible.

In alignment with our mission to promote equity and excellence for English learners, MATSOL encourages submission of proposals that show a strong commitment to racial justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. To reflect this goal, MATSOL is piloting a new section in the proposal to explain how the presentation will address racial justice and/or culturally responsive teaching.

We look for reviewers with expertise in all audiences and presentation topic areas so that all proposals receive fair peer reviews.

In alignment with our mission to promote equity and excellence for English learners, MATSOL encourages the participation of BIPOC reviewers to ensure the inclusion of their perspectives and make visible MATSOL's commitment to racial justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
