The recently renovated Norfolk Waterside Marriott is the conference hotel. It is a wonderful facility, located one block from the riverfront and in the middle of much downtown activity. Enjoy your stay in newly renovated rooms with beautiful views, and have the hotel robot, Maribot, tell you a joke or deliver items to your room! Staying at the conference hotel allows you to be minutes from all events and in the heart of the action. The conference rate is $145/night, plus tax. Take advantage of this discounted rate and reserve your room by March 9, 2022!
Nominate a colleague for a SCOLT award! The Educator of Excellence Award is for outstanding post-secondary educators, the Leadership Award is for K-12 language educators, and the Bostick Award is for language teachers in the first 5 years of their career who have not attend SCOLT before. See the Awards and Scholarships page for more information and nomination forms!
Due to the inability to travel in 2020, the teacher travel scholarships awarded for 2020 have been postponed until 2022. At this time, only one new opportunity is available for the summer of 2022. Please see the scholarship information to learn more and to apply.
To have a safe, in-person experience for all, strict Covid protocols will be observed. All presenters, attendees, and exhibitors must provide proof of complete vaccination status or a negative Covid test result within 72 hours of arrival. An outside agency will collect this information and details will be shared in January. Additionally, masks will be required at all times, except when eating. Anyone who does not meet the requirements will not be allowed to attend the in-person conference.
The proposal acceptance window closed October 15, 2021. The SCOLT Board is excited by the large number of proposals that were submitted! All who submitted a proposal will receive an email from the Program Committee in early November. Exhibitors who wish to present a session but did not meet the deadline, there are limited spaces available. Please contact Leslie Baldwin at email@example.com.
