One of the main roles of a language teacher is to encourage and facilitate communication by providing an atmosphere conductive to accuracy, appropriacy and fluency of self-expression. TESOL Greece would like to create a forum in which all presenters can share inspiration and discuss specific approaches to language teaching. The TESOL Greece Convention presenters are encouraged to consider how to merge teaching techniques and methods with practices which have “evolved” with the advent of educational technology and the entire digital world and /or whether these techniques, methods and/or practices could, in fact, be regarded ‘revolutionary’ in the ELT field.
Please note also that a professional presentation should not be used to advance a book, publisher, author, course or examination. TESOL Greece Members are particularly sensitive to the distinction between commercial and professional presentations.
What topics are encouraged?
TESOL Greece Convention organizers welcome “r-evolutionary” ideas on topics concerning a variety of areas of language teaching, such as sourcing course content, catering to learners’ individual needs, increasing learner and teacher motivation, fostering teacher and learner autonomy, creating a supportive learning environment and implementing effective teaching practices.
The conference programme includes plenary sessions with world-class experts, smaller presentation and special focus sessions, practical demonstrations and debates on specific topics, as well as various informal networking opportunities in which practitioners share their experiences, ideas, new information and perspectives.
