* Schedule: Judson will be presenting a breakout session titled “Democratize Now: AI powered language assessments enable equity” on Wednesday, March 3rd 10:00-11:00 am MST.

Breakout Session Description: In order to close the global communication gap, there are long standing inequities in language assessment and instruction that need to be corrected. These barriers include restricted access, rising costs and even content bias that perpetuate imbalances in who benefits from gaining and demonstrating language ability. This presentation will survey how AI technologies can correct these inequities and open doors of opportunity for language education and employment wider than ever before. It will also offer ways in which conference participants can join in a democratic digital transformation of language assessment.
