Call for participation

You are cordially invited to participate in Thailand TESOL International Conference 2018 on 26-27 January 2018 at the Empress Hotel, Chiang Mai.

“Digital Literacy in English Language Learning and Teaching” is the 2018 conference theme. Not only do we wish to explore ELT in Thailand, but also in Asia and across the globe in the age of 21st-century literacies. Our goal is to stage a forum for in-depth discussions, a day of inquiry and critical engagement that will promote effective classroom practices for the benefit of English language learners as well as to provide opportunities for English language teaching professionals to exchange their teaching experiences, and innovative teaching approaches and techniques.

The aims of the Thailand TESOL 2018 conference are:

1) To offer a scholarly platform for both Thai and international teachers/educators, from pre-service teacher trainees to veterans, to reflect on their ideas about “Technology, Digital Literacies and English Education” in order to enhance their understanding of 21st century literacies of ELT;

2) To promote and disseminate new research contributions and information about teachers’ experiences in order to strengthen teaching and learning in current and future classrooms for teachers, teacher educators, and policy makers;

3) To foster and enhance discussion, reflection and network-building that will assist professional teachers to more fully participate as integrated members of their respective home countries’ English language teaching communities.
