The American Language Program (ALP) Winter Conference is a professional development event for practicing language educators, researchers, and graduate and doctoral students aimed at enriching their pedagogical practice in teaching. Although primarily focused on English as a Second Language (ESL/TESOL/ELT) education in academic settings, educators teaching other languages or in other educational contexts may find the presentations relevant and applicable to their teaching. The title for the 2018 conference is Teaching Learners How to Learn; previous years’ conferences have focused on vocabulary (2018), pronunciation pedagogy (2017), critical thinking in language teaching and learning (2016), and writing (2015).
Stakeholders in the field will share effective practices to promote student success from college to career. Each day is focused on an aspect of neurodiversity, and will include updates from CUNY Unlimited and Project REACH, breakout sessions, a student panel, and opportunities for meaningful discussion.

Strategies and Skills for Competitive Employment
