IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT for LTSIG members: We are very pleased to announce two travel scholarships for the 6th ELT Malta Conference. The two scholarships are up to £300 each to help selected LTSIG members to attend this event. If you are a current IATEFL LTSIG member and wish to apply for a scholarship, please complete sections 2 & 3 of this form.
We look forward to receiving your proposals.
On behalf of the IATEFL LTSIG Committee,
Sophia Mavridi & Shaun Wilden
All proposals must be related to the theme of 'English for 21st Century Skills'. Proposals can explore how technology in ELT can be used to foster:
• innovation• creativity• entrepreneurship• collaboration• critical thinking• digital literacy
Prospective speakers need to indicate whether their session is a talk or workshop. A talk (30 minutes, including questions) tells delegates something about teaching or learning English. A workshop (60 minutes, including questions) is a session in which there is active audience participation via the experiencing and discussing of tasks provided by the speaker.
Prospective speakers need to indicate whether they are speaking on behalf of a publisher or institution. Delegates are likely to be disappointed if a session they attended based on the description in the proposal turns out to be an advertisement for a publication, product, or course. If you are basing your session either in part or in full on newly or recently published material, you should clearly say this in your proposal.
The deadline for submission of proposals is 30 April 2017 (20.00 pm UK time). Notification of acceptance/rejection of proposals will take place after 15 May 2017. Once you have been accepted to speak, you will receive a provisional acceptance email.
