COFLT 2021 Fall Conference
"Moving Ahead Together"
It's been too long! After a challenging year and a half, COFLT is excited again to offer a fall conference. This year's conference will be a virtual event that combines pre-recorded presentations, recorded sessions with roundtable discussions, interactive workshops, and Critical Friends discussion groups. Conference proposals will be accepted through September 10th, 2021. All accepted proposals will be notified shortly after the 10th.
The fall COFLT conference will be held online on Friday and Saturday, October 8 and 9, 2021 in coordination with WAFLT.
