KOTESOL National Conference 2014: Change in the Classroom: Principled Pragmatism

Date: Saturday, May 31st, 2014 Time: 10:00 AM - 6:30 PM

Speaker: Marc Helgesen, more. Call for papers due March 12th, 2014

Our goal for this year's event is to explore Principled Pragmatism in the Korean and Global ELT setting. The theme means that we are not committed to a single theory or aspect associated with the SLA process. Instead, we choose to explore how problems, issues and challenges are dealt with in real teaching contexts using a divergent range of methodologies, strategies and techniques. Considering this conference focus, we invite any proposal that focuses on improving practice in the classroom through informed means. The proposals should, however, fit into one of the following four formats:

  • Practical Research Reports that Address Needs and Challenges (Especially Action Research Projects)
  • Presentations of Classroom Techniques & Practices Addressing Students' Needs
  • Interactive Workshops Presenting Principled ELT Practices
  • Engaging Poster Sessions
