Teachers of German are more than ever focused on creating sustainable German programs in their schools and engaging school communities in cross-curricular projects. German lends itself to many domains, in particular to those related to environmental topics and therefore plays a pivotal role in creating a viable future. A language program well embedded in school and community life will positively influence learning outcomes for students of all subjects
International and local guest speakers and colleagues will present inspiring ideas and best practice examples ready for classroom use as well as the latest trends in research and language policies (state, national and international). There will be an emphasis on innovative and integrated learning programs to engage students of all ages.
This conference provides the forum to develop personal collaborative relationships promoted by the Network of Australian Teachers of German (NATG).

We invite all educators to submit papers for consideration that relate to their research, experiences and strategies for learning, teaching and the promotion of the German language. Please consider offering a session, or sharing a presentation with another teacher, or encouraging a colleague to contribute to the National Conference. 
Please submit papers for consideration by 6 July 2018 via the online form.
