Strategies for Encouraging, Engaging, and Educating Students (SEEES) Using different Strategies in a more innovative way augments the number of platforms where students can access English as a foreign language and shape their ways of learning it in microcosmic and macrocosmic settings. Encouraging students to engage enthusiastically, learn cooperatively, and work effectively. Engaging students in the learning process increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level-critical thinking skills, and promotes meaningful leaning experiences. Educating students to become lifelong learners is a no-easy task for teachers to make them face the fast and unexpected changes in their everyday lives and to better serve their communities in the future.
4th ELTPD Workshop Subtheme
Proposals in any of the following sub-themes are highly appreciated
4th ELTPD Workshop committee has prepared a list of resources to help you write your proposal:
The targeted audience engagement should be integrated into all session types. Please note, for all session types, presenters are expected to engage the audience rather than simply reading a scripted presentation. For more information about session types, please see the overview of session types below:
30 min., 1–3 Presenter
Oral summary of the researcher’s topic and work in relation to theory and/or practice with only occasional reference to notes or text. Proposal should include a synopsis of the topic, including central research question, results, supporting evidence, and implications. Presentation should be addressed to a general ELT audience, not scholars in a subfield. Researchers may submit a joint proposal focusing on two related research projects.
20 min., 1–2 Presenters
Similar in content to a practice-oriented presentation but shorter. The teaching tip session is an oral summary that discusses the presenter’s work in relation to practice.
30 min.; 1–2 Presenters
A visually explanatory exhibit that allows for short, informal discussion between the presenter(s) and attendees as they circulate within the poster-session area. Poster sessions serve as an important and interactive forum for sharing professional ideas and for receiving feedback.
40 min., 1– 3 Presenters
A carefully structured, hands-on, professional development activity. The presenter(s) and participants tackle a problem or develop specific teaching or research techniques.
