Toyohashi JALT:

Entering the conversation, joining the community: Legitimate participation in academic publishing / Annual Bonenkai

Date: Sunday, December 11th, 2011 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Theron Muller

Part of the annual JALT Four-Corners Tour, this interactive workshop by Theron Muller is divided into two parts. The first illustrates how audience members can become legitimate participants in academic publishing by explaining different journal systems, including The Language Teacher, the JALT Conference Proceedings, and the Asian EFL Journal family of journals. Attention will be given to where participants can contribute by becoming members of the journals' communities of practice, through volunteering or through authoring papers for publication.

The second part will cover successful production of academic discourse. It will include activities like changing samples of academic papers to better meet publication requirements, and will also consider how writers can successfully access the resources necessary for successful academic production. Participants should expect to gain a better understanding of the systems of academic journals, where they could become participants in those systems, and how they can approach writing articles which have a greater chance of being accepted.

Following Theron Muller's presentation we will be holding our annual Bonenkai. It will be from 5:00pm to 6:50pm at the Restaurant Rosiere at the Associa Hotel Toyohashi. The cost is 5000 yen for a buffet-style dinner. Please contact us as soon as possible (latest registration is December 9th) if you plan to attend. Please come and enjoy some great food and conversation.
