    Tips for Registration and Payment

    We use Wild Apricot to process online payments. An account is not necessary, however currently it requires that the registrant also be the cardholder since it automatically populates that person's name into its system.

    Undergraduate students who wish to apply for the Future Language Educator Award MUST complete this application PRIOR to registration for the reduced conference rate.

    For registrants whose organization will make payment, there are three options:

    1. Request that a check be mailed to MCTLC, PO Box 11926, St. Paul, MN 55111. The registrants' name must be included so that we know to whom to apply payment. -OR-
    2. Send an email to MCTLC Treasurer with the name, email, and phone number of the cardholder (for example, the admin assistant or bookkeeper). The treasurer will forward an invoice for the registration amount to that person who may then use Wild Apricot to process the credit card. -OR-
    3. Make a personal payment and request reimbursement.

    Register as a Group

    Register your colleagues a group using the "register a guest" option.

    The person who registers the group should be the person making payment. In other words, the person whose name is on the credit card should be the primary registrant since PayPal will require that person to be the cardholder. If the cardholder is not in the group use one of the methods outlined above.

    ACTFL workshop: Unwrapping Proficiency

    Brought to you in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Education  and MCTLC and its 2018 Fall Conference


    Presenter: Paul Sandrock, Director of Education at the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL)

    This full day workshop will link Proficiency and Performance and how performance assessments can be used to measure growth in the three modes of communication and the World Readiness Standards.  Identifying what makes a learner Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced will be addressed.  Ideas for employing best practices using the best mix of modes for each level to help move students along the proficiency continuum will be shared using the NCSSFL & ACTFL Can-Do statements.  Participants will practice identifying key characteristics using ACTFL samples and distinguish strategies to support learners aiming to earn Minnesota's bilingual seals.

    Registration for this full day workshop includes a light breakfast and a boxed lunch.  

    Registration for this event does NOT include registration for the MCTLC 2018 Fall Conference.  If you would like to register for the MCTLC 2018 Fall Conference (including the option to attend the conference AND this full-day ACTFL workshop), please click here.

    Please note that this event takes place at the Minnesota Department of Education in Roseville, MN.
