Well done Codie Fortin Lalonde and her awesome organizing committee (Matt Falconer, Alex Ross, Brent Campagnola, and Kirsten Paula) for putting together such a smoothly-run, well-attended, and super-informative symposium held yesterday in the Carleton Discovery Centre.

The theme of this year’s symposium was “Beyond Boundaries: Navigating interdisciplinary perspectives in ALDS” and included both presentations/Q&A discussions with keynote panelists (Dr. Janna Fox, Dr. Eva Kartchava, and Dr. Graham Smart), and a poster session with contributions from more than a dozen graduate students.

Topics addressed by the posters did well to cover the breadth of the discipline from teachers’ decision-making and pedagogical uses of gesture to formulaic language, speech fluency in testing, perspectives on discourse in various high stakes contexts, and more.
