The 2014 Lighthouse Summer Symposium at Ferris State will run for two full days, from June 20th and 21st, 2014. All presentations will take place on Big Rapids campus of Ferris State University (Big Rapids is an hour north of Grand Rapids). The format will be similar to last year's symposium, only better. Our planning has been greatly informed by the feedback from last year's attendees. The overarching goal of our symposium this year is to focus intensively on vocabulary teaching and learning.
In other words, we want to organize sessions that are more workshop-style and collegial, where the attendees are actively engaged with the presenter in exploring the pedagogy and innovative best practices addressing issues pertaining to vocabulary teaching and learning. Besides the working sessions, we want to allow time for the attendees to rub shoulders or network professionally in a less formal setting. So, the schedule will include slots for "tea time" and lighter evening activities in the summer ambiance of West Michigan.
