Meeting Description: The main aim of the CELC symposium is to bridge theory and practice. It is a gathering of ELT practitioners and scholars worldwide to share innovative and state-of-the-art language teaching and learning ideas.

The theme, Alternative Pedagogies in the English Language & Communication Classroom, focuses on a pedagogic inquiry into ways of teaching that respond to recent globalizing and cultural forces as well as technologies impacting instruction and learning. Beyond the 'best practices' approach, such inquiry urges participants and presenters to explore the interplay of theories and practices, particularly that which generates the production of knowledge informing classroom processes and practices. This line of inquiry also urges everyone to forge professional and institutional ties intended to promote a dialogue of and reflections on radical and innovative approaches to language and communication instruction.
