Symposium Structure

The two-day symposium will be held in a hybrid mode (virtually and in-person) on the University of Toronto Mississauga Campus. Each day will begin with virtual/in-person coffee and registration, followed by our plenaries. Afterward, we will have several (possibly parallel) sessions for paper and poster presentations. 

As stated in our Call for Papers, we are looking for two types of presentations: 

  • Strand 1: Presentations and Plenary Sessions: This strand includes the two Plenary sessions and the presentation sessions. Three presentation sessions will be organized which will be about current themes in language and literacies education. According to the number of submissions that are received, there may be parallel sessions.
  • Strand 2: Poster sessions: Poster sessions will also be featuring at the symposium as this will encourage exchange and networking. Participants will be able to put up poster displays describing their work and projects and distribute relevant information during the event. The posters can outline projects that are still in-progress. The poster sessions will allow close and personalized contact between the participants and the exhibitors.
