Meeting Description:

The Second Language Acquisition and Teaching Student Association is proud to put on its 11th Annual Roundtable.

Keynote Speaker:

Dr. Steven Thorne, Portland State University

Plenary Address:

Dr. Sonia Shiri, University of Arizona

Call for Papers:

With an emphasis on language pedagogy, assessment, language program administration, language use, language processes, language analysis and other areas that bridge these topics, we welcome presentations, panels, posters, and workshops from students and faculty from around the country.

Presentations of Research in Progress: 45 min (30 min talk/15 min Q&A)

These talks will address small audiences of up to 30 participants. Papers representing the strands of the SLAT Program (language pedagogy, assessment, language program administration, language use, language processes, or language analysis) as well as those that bridge these areas are welcome.

Panel: 75 min (15 min ea/30 min Q&A)

Students (especially pre-dissertation students) are encouraged to create panels of 3 to discuss different perspectives on complex issues in SLA. Possible topics include: high tech/low tech/no tech, Native/Non-native Teachers, Language Standards/World English, Teaching grammar/Teaching culture, functionalism/structuralism, top-down/bottom-up strategies, Whole Language/Phonics. These are only examples, if you can build a panel around another topic, feel free! Panel speakers should establish a brief theoretical framework before beginning discussions about real-life scenarios. Q&A may lead to future research brainstorming.

Posters: A visual representation of research

Proposals for Presentations and Panels can choose to also apply to the poster session. If participants wish to be considered for the poster session only, they should make this clear in the comments section of the Presentation Submission form. Posters will be judged by faculty and awards will be given at the end of the Roundtable.

Workshops: A practical demonstration of a theory or an application of a pedagogical methodology

The presenter engages and involves the audience through experiential learning techniques.

All proposals should be submitted electronically.
