A minimum of three hours of conference time will be dedicated to exhibitors. The cost of a virtual booth is based on the type of organization:

One of the most in-demand teaching trends for 2020 is online learning and how to do it effectively without inducing “Zoom fatigue” in either the teacher or the students. With that in mind, many presenters at CLWB have volunteered their expertise to help the rest of us up that long learning curve.
Watch for the last installment in this series: Inclusivity and Indigenous Languages. CLWB takes place on October 23–24, so register now!

As they prepare for and move on to college life, students undergo many transitions. The most important are the social and academic changes that new students will face in addition to dealing with a new language if English is their second language. Students need to make connections that will help them adjust to this new life. International students especially may feel isolated as they are far away from home, and the initial excitement may wear off quickly.
