About the Conference

Under the auspices of the International Association for Task-Based Language Teaching, the 2019 TBLT Conference will bring together scholars and educators to the beautiful campus of Carleton University, located in Canada’s capital.

Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) is an educational framework for the theory and practice of teaching second or foreign languages. Based on empirical research, TBLT adopts meaning-based, communicative tasks as the central unit for defining language learning needs, determining curriculum goals, designing activity in the (language) classroom, and assessing language competencies.

With the “TBLT: Insight, Instruction, Outcomes” theme, the conference aims to broaden the current perspectives on TBLT by focusing on the learner, teaching, and evaluation of learning by asking “what lies ahead?” To this end, we invite researchers and educators from around the world to come together to gain knowledge and increase understanding about task-based theoretical insights, instructional practices, and assessment strategies.
