Call Deadline: 25-Oct-2014
This event will give the community of professional English-language educators
in Shanghai a chance to meet others within the field and enhance their
awareness of the current state of teaching English as a foreign language in
China. At TEFL Shanghai 2014, we hope to provide a forum for TESOL
professionals to gain insight into the challenges Chinese learners face and
ways to overcome these obstacles. We will discuss ways to negotiate the
pitfalls common in the foreign language classroom, as well as how to
incorporate new strategies and materials into lessons.
Call for Papers:
We are currently seeking presenters for the following:
Posters should be around 60 x 90 cm and present information on one aspect of English teaching and/or second language acquisition. Font size should be no smaller than 24 point and posters should be easily readable from the distance of one meter. Posters should include visuals, such as charts, graphs, pictures, and illustrations. Presenters are expected to not only submit their work, but also to be available during conference break times to answer questions and engage in informal conversations about their posters.
To submit a poster, please fill out an application form. In addition, attach a short summary (100 – 150 words) describing the information you wish to present.
Workshops should be related to teaching strategies and resources. Topics could include teaching certain skills, like reading, writing, pronunciation, or grammar. They could also concentrate on integrating specific teaching methodologies like participatory language teaching or project-based learning. In addition, workshops could focus on how to adapt various materials, such as electronic media or music to the classroom. The workshop should include audience participation and discussion. Tasks should be designed to encourage participants to actively engage in activities and increase their awareness of the subject matter through collaboration. Workshops will last for 45 minutes.
To submit a proposal, please fill out an application form. In addition, attach a brief plan for the workshop. The plan should be at least 300 words and include objectives, a summary of the topic, and a brief outline of how the time will be used.
Papers should center on an issue related to second language education or acquisition. Topics could include a summary of an important issue in the field of TEFL, analyses of data, or research findings. At the conference, a 20-30 minute summary of the paper will be presented along with a question and answer session.
