The Centre for English Language Communication, National University of Singapore invites English language teaching (ELT) practitioners and scholars to the 5th CELC symposium on the theme, Strengthening connectivities in ELT: pedagogies, disciplines, cultures, from 25 to 27 May 2016 at the National University of Singapore. The main aim of the CELC symposium is to bridge theory and practice. It is a gathering of ELT practitioners and scholars from all over the world to share state-of-the-art language teaching and learning ideas. The symposium combines classroom-based research paper presentations, workshops, demonstrations, poster sessions, colloquia and focused panel discussions to give presenters and participants an enriching professional development experience.

The CELC Symposium 2016 aims to provide a platform for examining how ELT, in higher education today, is multi-pedagogical, interdisciplinary and intercultural. Specifically, we are interested in papers that focus on emergent connections between different disciplinary ideas and methods as well socio-cultural, institutional and digital contexts that variously shape and are, in turn, enhanced by pedagogical engagements within the language and communication classroom. "Strengthening connectivities in ELT: pedagogies, disciplines, cultures" thus seeks to explore how the three paradigms are evolving and how they continually interact with and impact one another. Information on the symposium can be found at nus.edu.sg/celc/symposium.
