Meeting Description:

Tunisia TESOL 2nd International Conference
14-16 February 2015
Cite Des Sciences, Tunis Tunisia

Tunisia TESOL 2nd International Conference aims to bring together scholars and practitioners around the theme of the use of technology in English language learning/teaching. We are interested in discussing the partial or total “blending” of technology into ELT curricula, course design, material development, day-to-day teaching as well as assessment.

We would like our conference to be an opportunity for practitioners to learn about the ways in which fellow teachers create “new learning spaces” and implement “innovative ideas” without losing sight of the learners’ needs as citizens in an increasingly globalized and digitized world.

2nd Call for Papers:

The Organizing Committee invites various forms of submissions (presentations, posters, case studies, work-in-progress and product demonstrations, workshops, and product show-casing) on the topic of learning technologies and evolving pedagogies. Topics may include:

- Technology and educational policy
- Technology for the promotion of 21st century literacy skills
- Computers, mobile devices and social media in learning/teaching
- Corpus-based teaching
- Networked schools and classrooms
- Distance education
- Multimedia tools and authoring
- Technology in teacher education
- Language learner corpora
