2022 Language & Literacy Institute: Registration Now Open!

Mark your calendars for the 2022 Language & Literacy (virtual) Institute on January 27-28, 2022! This is ATLAS’s largest event each year, a two-day conference of language and literacy-related workshops that you will NOT want to miss. If you teach any aspect of language and literacy—at any level—this event is for you!

Registration is now OPEN (as of January 4).


On the registration page you will also find the full schedule and information about each session and its presenters.  As this conference is being offered virtually, there is NO FEE to attend, but you do need to register in order to receive the Zoom links for the sessions.

In addition to two days of interactive, dynamic online workshops, this year’s institute will continue to offer shorter “Take ‘n Bake” informational sessions, Networking Coffee Breaks with colleagues who teach similar content or within a similar context, as well as optional affinity group time (e.g., LGBTQ+, BIPOC, anti-racism).
