Meeting Description:

KOTESOL invites presenters on various topics in the ELT field to speak to English teachers working in Korea at the 16th annual international conference in Seoul, October 25-26, 2008.

Call for Papers

Korea TESOL encourages teachers and scholars to consider what it is about the contemporary ELT environment that drives change in the classroom, and to present their responses before 900 of their colleagues at our 16th annual international conference in Seoul, October 25-26, 2008.

The changing world reflects change in learners, social issues, educational settings, and even in language itself. This is not to say that the principles and values of 50 years ago are no longer valid, but that teachers have much more to consider in selecting their teaching approach. Sub-themes for this year's conference include:
- Global Englishes
- Content-Based Instruction
- English for Specific Purposes
- Technology-Enhanced Instruction
- Genre Studies
- Facilitating Learning in the Classroom
- Internet English
- Intercultural Communication
- Global Issues for Language Learning
- Innovative Methodologies & Approaches
- 21st Century Learning Preferences/Styles
- Others related to the general theme

Presentation proposals that address the above sub-themes will be given preference in the vetting process. Presentations should also fit one of these target audiences:
A. ''How-to Basics'' Sessions (Building the basics for beginning teachers; practical sessions)
B. ''How-to Plus'' Sessions (Building on the basics for experienced teachers; practical sessions)
C. ''Research and Theory'' Sessions (Research-based and theoretical sessions)

International participation encouraged.

The TEAL Workshop was first launched in 1990 at the University of California, Irvine as a mid-size workshop intended to foster research on East Asian linguistics. It has been an important forum for presenting new theories and exchanging novel ideas that bear on East Asian languages with theoretical interests. Since 2002, the TEAL Workshop has been an international event. It was held at Doshisha University, Japan in 2002, at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan in 2004, and at Harvard University, USA in 2005. Last year TEAL was held in conjunction with the Sixth GLOW in Asia.

Importantant Dates:
Deadline for abstract submissions: April 30th 2008
