“Connecting Classrooms, Connecting with Students”

2013 HALT Fall Symposium


Saturday, October 19, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

Moore Hall 153

University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa


Each fall, HALT hosts its annual half-day Fall Symposium, which provides hands-on workshops on ways to integrate technology into language teaching.

This year the theme of our Fall Symposium will be “Connecting Classrooms, Connecting with Students.” We will feature two technologies which teachers are using more and more and which are of interest to all levels of teaching: Edmodo, to create a class community, and Skype, to connect with other classrooms. The presentations will show us how these tools work and activities that can be done in the language classroom using them. We will also have plenty of time for hands-on practice. Come and join us!

12:15-12:30 Evaluation Forms


The HALT Fall Symposium is free for current paid HALT members.  There is no need to pre-register prior to the symposium.  Just come on the day.

Non-members pay $10, which they can do on-site when they sign in. To get more bang for the buck, however, we encourage non-members to sign up for HALT membership at the Fall Symposium (student – $5, professional – $15, lifetime – $100). This way, they can then attend the symposium for free, be added to the HALT listserv, and get a discounted rate for the HALT Spring Conference. A great value!  For more information about membership or to fill out the membership form in advance, please visit our Membership page.



Parking is a $6 flat fee on weekends at UH Mānoa. You pick up and pay for your parking pass from the parking guard kiosk as you drive onto campus via the Dole Street entrance. You can park anywhere on upper campus, except for the green parking stalls and the 24-hour reserved parking stalls. We recommend parking in the large parking lot to the left of the red & green Center for Korean Studies (corner of East-West Road and Maile Way). Moore Hall is just across the street. The labs are located on the first floor– just enter through the double doors.

Please leave your parking pass on your dashboard before you leave your car, in plain sight for the parking guards who will be patrolling campus.
