CFP for ESSE 2016 Seminar ''Multimodal Perspectives on English Language Teaching''
ESSE 2016 Conference , August 22-26, Galway, Ireland (

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:
