The LTP conference will be held at the University of Graz in Austria from 6 to 8 September, 2021. The conference will bring together educators and scholars around the world interested in strengthening the current understanding of the psychology of language teachers. The conference is unique in putting the teachers in the centre focus to understand their needs, motives, emotions, beliefs, identities, desires, and wellbeing among other aspects of their personal and professional lives.

This conference is a closing event for an FWF-funded three-year research project “The social-psychological capital of foreign language teachers”. In this project, we explored the wellbeing of foreign language teachers across the professional lifespan in different contexts. The main findings of the extended study will be presented at the event.
