Meeting Description:

With increased interest in the integration of CEFR and CLIL, this international symposium & workshop serves to further the educational discussion within CEFR in all levels of education, with the additional understanding of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Instruction). Our goal is to create a forum for discussions promoting the understanding of concepts related to, applications of, and future directions of CEFR and CLIL in Japan and beyond.

We are calling for papers that (a) bridge the research and practice divide and (b) will provide a rich context for discussion throughout the conference.

Thematic discussions: Discussions will be led by a moderator and centered around three (3) presentations of similar themes. Each presentation should discuss the interaction of theory and practice that will then be able to lead to the discussion of further applications of research and practice. The intended goal is to enrich the audience with theoretically informed ideas, activities, and procedures they can integrate in their classrooms. (three presentations of 15 minutes with 15 minutes for discussion, total 1 hour) (If your abstract is accepted, we will propose a thematic slot for your presentation, which we will ask you to confirm)

Posters: Poster presentations are to include a clear theoretical background with an
educational application. We are looking for posters that show research informed teaching and/or teaching that informs research. (There will be a dedicated 1 hour poster session for presenter-audience interaction)

Workshops: Workshops should invoke discussion with the audience around the applications of CEFR and/or CLIL in research and practice. Therefore, while there should be a theoretical background, there should be a clear practical orientation to your workshop; one that fosters ideas with the audience and elevates their conceptual understandings. (1 hour)

Round Table/Large room discussions: These will be discussions based on a particular theme, moderated by presenters/Ph.D. candidates and joined by conference attendees. These discussions are based on the conference theme and are not included in the Call for Papers.
