Subject: PAN-ASIA CONFERENCE '97: First Announcement and Call for Papers
 PAN-ASIA: A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING
 January 5-7, 1997, The Ambassador Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand
 Thai TESOL 17th Annual Conference
 In Partnership with JALT and Korea TESOL
 =============================================================================
Theme: PAN-ASIA: A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING
- ---
The conference will explore common interests and issues on English language
teaching from an Asian perspective:
	- Culturally relevant techniques and materials
	- Appropriate technology relating to education
	- Effective use of English throughout Asia
Rationale and Aims:
- ----------------
Asia is one of the most rapidly developing regions in the world. It has
risen to prominence in all areas of industry, manufacturing and economy.
Yet Asia is characterized by its diversity as much as by its uniformity.
Development has brought increased links with the world as well as within
Asia itself and the primary medium of communication is the English
language. This conference will be the first to provide teachers of English
language from various countries across Asia a forum to meet, discuss,
compare experiences, share knowledge, methods, and techniques, and to
explore whether a new and common vision for English language teaching in
Asia may be forged.
- --
Venue: The Ambassador Hotel, 171 Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, Thailand
- ---
Participants:
- ----------
There will be about 2,000 language and teaching professionals including
teachers from all educational levels, teacher trainers, program
administrators, curriculum developers, and test developers. The majority
of participants will be from the Asia Pacific region.
Language of the Conference: English

 CALL FOR PAPERS
Proposals are invited for papers, workshops, demonstrations, poster
presentations and publisher's sessions.
KINDS OF PRESENTATION:
1. Papers - These are lecture presentations to a formal audience. The
duration is 45 minutes including time for questions and comments from the
audience. The Conference Committee reserve the right to assign papers to
either plenary or parallel sessions.
2. Demonstrations - Rather than describing and discussing, a demonstration
shows techniques for teaching. Normally, the presenter's statement of the
theory underlying the technique takes no more than five minutes. The rest
of the demonstration is used for showing, rather than telling. The presenter
usually has handouts and may also use audiovisual aids. The abstract should
include a brief statement of the presenter's central purpose and a
description of what will be demonstrated (e.g. role playing) and how it
will be done (e.g. some of the audience participating as students or an
unrehearsed lesson with actual students). The duration is 45 or 90 minutes,
inclusive of questions and comments from the audience.
3. Workshops - These are demonstrations or discussions of classroom
practices in which audience members are expected to be actively involved.
The duration is 90 minutes. Certain workshops may be repeated where
desirable and feasible.
4. Poster Sessions - A poster session allows for informal discussion with
passers-by while a self-explanatory exhibit is on display. The exhibit is
presented on a four-foot by eight-foot (roughly one meter by two meters)
bulletin board. It includes a title, the name and affiliation of the
presenters, and a brief text with clearly labeled photographs, drawings,
graphs or charts. Appropriate topics would include projects in progress,
or materials development.
5. Publisher's Sessions - This is an opportunity for an exhibitor to
present materials and to explain the thinking behind them more fully than
is possible at an exhibition booth. These sessions are presented by book
publishers, authors, editors or distributors, equipment manufacturers,
and others whose goods or services have significance for the participants.
