CFP for ESSE 2016 Seminar ''Multimodal Perspectives on English Language Teaching''

Multimodal literacy involves the ability to construct meanings from texts that integrate different semiotic resources. In language teaching, the multimodal approach is particularly important to help students learn to exploit modes beyond verbal language (e.g., visual, gestural, spatial) to both understand and produce texts in the target language more effectively. This seminar aims to provide a forum to discuss the role of multimodality in English language teaching.
Possible topics for development include: communication processes between teachers and learners that are mediated through multimodal methods and materials, frameworks for teaching multimodal competence, assessment of learning based on multimodal input, assessment of student performance in multimodal tasks and attitudes towards teaching/learning non-verbal communication in the English language classroom.
Here are details about how to submit an abstract and deadlines:
Participants are invited to submit a 200-word abstract of their proposed papers directly to both convenors of the seminar before 28 February 2016. They will be informed of the convenors' decision by 31 March 2016. Seminar presentations may be of maximum 15 minutes.
