AFMLTA has enjoyed a productive partnership with LCNAU since its founding in 2013.
AFMLTA President and LCNAU President Jean Fornasiero recently met to discuss various aspects of our collaboration, including formalising reciprocal registration arrangements for conferences.
Various MLTAs have raised concerns with AFMLTA about the reduction or closer of university language programs. This was discussed at length and LCNAU has been actively lobbying in this space. AFMLTA is committed to working with LCNAU to support this advocacy and campaigning, as appropriate.
With the impending closure of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, AFMLTA and LCNAU are working with the Centre to plan the future co-managing of the Patji-Dawes Language Teaching Award.
