The American Cultural Association (ACA) is pleased to announce the 30th All-ALC Conference, the largest gathering of English-language educators in Morocco. As the not-for-profit, bi-national parent organization of the American Language Centers (ALC) in Morocco, the ACA is dedicated to promoting English as a foreign language education. With 12 ALCs across the country, the ACA boasts a diverse workforce of over 1,000 teachers and approximately 200 administrative and support staff members.

The 30th All-ALC conference provides an opportunity for English teachers from Morocco and beyond to come together, learn from one another, and explore new ideas in the field of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) education. We cordially invite teachers and teacher educators from Morocco and beyond to submit proposals that align with this year’s conference theme:

As language teachers, we constantly explore our classroom procedures, student learning outcomes, and trends in teaching, looking for problems to solve, techniques to tweak, or apps to try… We discover.

We also plan new activities, devise new teaching strategies, shake up modes of interaction… We design.

Often, we implement the results of our discovery and design in our own classrooms.  Sometimes, these ideas grow into a workshop or presentation for our colleagues at international conferences… We deliver.

We hope the 3 Ds of Discover, Design, and Deliver at our 30th All-ALC Conference will inspire you to look at challenges from a different perspective and try new approaches and tools to improve your teaching and your students’ learning!

We encourage proposals related to the 3 Ds, and also welcome submissions on other EFL/ESL subjects:

  • Teachers and action research
  • Motivation and language learning
  • The latest trends in EFL education
  • Culture and language learning
  • Bringing the world into the classroom
  • Real world applications of English
  • Meeting the needs of diverse learners
  • Ed tech/AI in EFL education
  • Best practices for teaching EFL in Morocco

We invite proposals for sessions of the following formats:

  • Lightning Talks: A 3-minute talk within a 45-minute session in which 8-10 speakers pitch an idea/plant a seed/share food for thought to spark new conversations and collaborations (proposals should be for a single 3-minute talk). 
  • Presentations: 30-minute sessions relating to theory and practice
  • Classroom Activity Shares: 30-minute sessions in which a classroom activity is demonstrated to a small group of attendees 
  • Workshops: 45-minute interactive sessions with audience participation
  • Panel Discussions: 75-minute sessions in which three to four people present their views on a topic (proposals should list all panel members if proposing a whole panel, or indicate which panel applicant proposes to participate in)
  • Poster Sessions: Visual displays of an area of research or theory and practice that will be displayed during coffee break

Proposals must be accompanied by a 100-word abstract. For presentations, classroom activity shares, workshops, and panels, a short video is also required to support your proposal.
