Event description

Description

The American Language Program (ALP) Winter Conference is a professional development event for practicing language educators, researchers, and graduate and doctoral students aimed at enriching their pedagogical practice in teaching. Although primarily focused on English as a Second Language (ESL/TESOL/ELT) education in academic settings, educators teaching other languages or in other educational contexts may find the presentations relevant and applicable to their teaching. The title for the 2018 conference is Teaching Learners How to Learn; previous years’ conferences have focused on vocabulary (2018), pronunciation pedagogy (2017), critical thinking in language teaching and learning (2016), and writing (2015).

The conference will begin with a plenary address by Lesley Painter-Farell, Director of the MA TESOL program at The New School. The plenary for the 2018 conference on vocabulary, given by Dr. Frances Boyd can be watched here. This address will be followed by four concurrent sessions and one hour of mini-presentations, as well as a networking/happy hour. Breakfast and lunch are included with admission.

We welcome proposals from our colleagues at all New York area universities, colleges, and schools, and we are interested in receiving proposals that focus on either practical approaches and techniques or research-informed presentations that demonstrate how students learn, remember, and use the language skills and knowledge they have studied and practiced in the classroom. To submit a proposal use this form; proposals will be accepted until January 14, 2019. We are especially interested in presentations from which attendees will take away practical classroom applications and ideas.
