Call for Papers:

The organizing committee of FAB4 invites interested teachers/researchers to submit presentation proposals.

How can Neuroscience, Psychology, and English Language Teaching (ELT) inform each other for the benefit of students and teachers? This question is at the core of our FAB events. We are asking teachers/researchers to connect at least two out of the three (Neuroscience, Psychology, and ELT) areas and choose the best format for their presentation. Formats are: Poster session, Pecha Kucha sessions, research-focused presentations (20 minutes), and workshop-style presentations (50 minutes).

A certificate: Neuroscience for Teaching EFL is available as an option for participants (additional work required for full certification).

Please submit the following information:

1. Presenter Name(s) and Affiliations
2. Title of proposed presentation
3. Summary of presentation (less than 150 words)
4. Format (poster session, Pecha Kucha, research-focused, workshop-style)
