  • Language Centre Summer Conference 2019: Connecting the dots: Exploring diverse perspectives in language teaching and learning

The Language Centre Summer Conference will be hosted by the University of Leeds Language Centre on Friday 2nd August 2019. This is a dynamic and innovative conference open to all language teaching staff at the University of Leeds.

Continuing internationalisation within the University of Leeds has brought diversity in language teaching provision, practitioner experience and pedagogy. It is, therefore, more crucial than ever to recognise the varied and vital perspectives this provides on how languages are taught. Submissions are invited which frame language teaching and learning within and between the following themes, and that seek to make connections between these practitioner perspectives.

As a presenter/host you can choose which dots you join!

– Technology enhanced learning
– Classroom practice and pedagogy
– Assessment and feedback
– Theoretical frameworks and models
– Learner and/or teacher identity
– Interdisciplinarity
– Intercultural competence
– Research and scholarship

The following range of formats will be considered:

Presentation (20 mins)
With 5 minutes for questions

Mini-workshop (25 mins)
This can be theoretical or practical

Knowledge Café host (25 mins)
A topic introduced by a host who facilitates exploration of 3 set questions with delegates

Micro talk (5 mins)

We welcome abstracts based around MFL, General English and EAP and any other language teaching disciplines. The deadline for submitting abstracts is the 3rd June. The form can be downloaded here: Call for Papers – LC Summer Conference 2019
