International Conference Call for Proposals Closing Soon

31 May 2017 is the deadline for those wishing to submit a proposal for the 25th Annual Korea TESOL - PAC International Conference.  The conference,  21-22 October 2017 at Sookmyung Women's University, typically attracts about a thousand attendees from Korea, across Asia, and beyond.  It is a great venue for English educators, applied linguists, and scholars to present their expertise, share ideas, discuss experiences, and inspire others.

This year’s conference theme is “Why Are We Here? Analog Learning in the Digital Era.” The theme is intended to explore the relevance of face-to-face learning when technological advances have made it possible to create online and distance-learning options.  

Korea TESOL also welcomes proposals on a wide array of English language teaching (ELT) and English language learning (ELL) topics. One specific series includes the prefix “101” and features sessions intended for participants who are new to the ELT community. While considering topics, presenters also have a variety of formats to choose from: workshops, panels, and research presentations are a few of the options available.    

In addition, this year’s conference is being held in conjunction with the Pan-Asian Consortium of Language Teaching Societies (PAC). PAC members include ELT associations from China, Japan, Russia, the Philippines, and Thailand as well as Korea TESOL.   

Again, the deadline for those wishing to submit a presentation proposal is May 31st. For more information about the conference and the proposal process, please visit http://koreatesol.org/ic2017.
