Meeting Description:

National Interdisciplinary Conference on Current Issues of English Teaching and Learning (NICCIETL) is a national conference organized by Pazoheshgaran Andishmand Institute, Ahwaz, Iran.

The NICCIETL will be held on March 4-6, 2015 and will be dedicated to current trends and developments in English teaching and learning studies.

Academics and university lecturers are cordially invited to present their research regarding current issues of English teaching and learning as people who can help the field of English teaching and learning. Such an approach suggests that English education is no longer limited within a certain field; knowledge from different fields cultivates diversity in English education. Recognizing this trend, the NICCIEITL Organizing Committee aims to provide a platform for researchers from various fields to exchange ideas on issues related to the empowerment of English teaching and learning.
