The conference theme this year is ‘Power to the Future’: we will look back at the past 5 years of our industry and reflect on what we’ve learnt as a profession as well as look at what’s in store for us over the next 5 years and beyond.
We especially welcome sessions that deliver value for teachers, teacher trainers, materials writers, content designers, marketers, edtech experts, learners and anyone involved in any way with teaching and learning languages, that could apply the takeaways from your session straight away at their workplace.
Here there are the main areas we’d love to hear about:
These sessions will involve you teaching a class of 6–10 Spanish-speaking, B1/B2-level learners observed by delegates. The session should include opportunities for feedback and discussion of the lesson. The room will have an internet connection and a projector. The learners should be included in the feedback sections, which can be in groups or plenary or a combination.
Would you like to get your audience actually doing something during your session? Workshops should get attendees thinking and creating things themselves and in small groups. These sessions will be in rooms with internet connection and a projector and we can help you set up your room in the way that best facilitates your desired outcome.
These are a collection of one hour hands on sessions that will be running simultaneously. Attendees will be encouraged to move between them, dropping in and out as they explore the different sessions. Maybe you are explaining how to use a particular tool or technique, maybe you’ve created a poster or short video describing some of the work you do or have done? Maybe you are demonstrating your own teaching strategies and activities. Maybe you have set up an activity that attendees can complete in their own time. The main thing is that the session is engaging and works with people dropping in and out.
These sessions will be in rooms with internet connection and a projector. You don’t have to involve your audience in your talk, but they should leave with some clear benefit of having spent their time with you.
All full paper submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, relevance to the theme of the conference, as well as the conference principles, that can be found in our manifesto.
If you are submitting a joint presentation, one speaker needs to submit the main call for papers form, and the other joint one/s need to submit this different form.
