Abstract DEADLINE EXTENDED to 21st SEPTEMBER 2018
Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) Hamilton is pleased to announce that due to a number of requests, the Call for Papers for the ALANZ SYMPOSIUM 2018 has been extended to the 21st SEPTEMBER 2018. We invite proposals for paper presentations, interactive sessions and posters.
Key note speaker: We are also pleased to announce that our key note speaker is Professor Gary Barkhuizen, Head of the School of Cultures, Languages and Linguistics, Auckland University
The landscape of English language teaching is constantly changing and as teachers contemplate new cohorts of learners, they face this question: Is business as usual enough?
In today's settings there are new technologies to incorporate into learning and teaching, different teaching spaces becoming available, a need to balance fostering learner autonomy with the pastoral care of students, as well as ensuring that our teaching is relevant to the world our students face.
We would like to adopt a collegial approach to this question and so invite abstracts from members and non-members of ALANZ and in particular from new and emerging researchers.
§ Oral Presentations: These will be allocated 20 minutes and 5 minutes for questions (25 minutes total) usually supported with visual aids.
§ Interactive sessions: These could be workshops or informal discussions around points of interest in Applied Linguistics (45 minutes) and could be supported by visual aids or activities.
Posters: Often some research projects can be best presented in a visual manner in the form of a poster.
Registration Fees are: Members: $80 Non-members: $100 Students: $40
