Meeting Description: International Symposium on ICT for Language Learning and Teaching
5-7 March-2014
University of Tunis El Manar

The symposium on ICT for language learning and teaching, sponsored by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development ‘IBRD’ with the aim to improve and promote the quality of language learning and teaching, is an excellent opportunity for the presentation and exchange of novel methods in the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to the fields of language learning and teaching. The symposium is intended to contribute to the sophisticated and challenging process of incorporating ICT into the educational system, which requires substantial changes at a myriad of levels: infrastructure, practices, training, testing, and logistics amongst many others.

Accommodation (for international participants) and catering during the conference are available and free of charge.
