LICENSE RENEWAL CREDIT
FOR ATTENDING THE IWLA CONFERENCE

Any in-service world language teacher may earn one license renewal credit for attending the IWLA Conference.  This is offered through the Linda Baker Teacher Leader Center at the University of Iowa College of Education.

Course Requirements:

  • Participants must register before 8 am on the first day of the conference. Late registration will not be allowed.

  • Participants must attend the entire Iowa World Language Association conference (8 am-6 pm Friday, 8 am-1 pm Saturday). Participants will be expected to attend a session during every session period, as well as all other large-group events such as the lunch on Friday and all keynote speeches.

  • If a participant is a presenter at the IWLA conference, they can skip one other session for preparation time.

  • Participants will be expected to check in at the beginning and end of each day (Friday and Saturday) at the University of Iowa table in the Exhibit Hall.  There will be a sign-in sheet that they will be required to initial.


Capstone Project: After the conference, participants will need to complete an online survey in order to report about their experiences at the conference.  This will take about one hour.  This survey will address their learning experiences at the conference, their plans for applying their new knowledge, and any other reflections.  They will be asked to report reflections on each session that they attended as well as the keynote speeches.  This will be due one week after the conference concludes.


Fee: $50, paid to the University of Iowa's Linda Baker Teacher Leader Center.  You must register and pay separately for this credit with the University even if you have already registered for the IWLA Conference.  

To register: Go to https://education.uiowa.edu/services/baker-teacher-leader-center-tlc/professional-development-educators. The course title is "Iowa World Language Association Conference." Follow the necessary steps to create an account. You must register before 8 am on the first day of the conference.

Registration for the 2017 conference is now closed, as the conference is over. Any registrants who have not communicated with me directly will not receive credit.

Getting your certificate:  Upon successful completion of the licensure renewal course, the Teacher Leader Center will send you an email with instructions explaining how to access your completion certificate within their database.
