TESOL TURKEY is pleased to announce that the 2nd TESOL TURKEY International ELT Conference will take place on 29-30 November 2019 and will be hosted by Eskişehir Osmangazi University, Eskişehir, Turkey. The event welcomes both presenters and participants who are interested in language teaching, learning and professional development.
TESOL TURKEY is a national association of ELT professionals committed to advancing the quality of English language teaching by contributing to the sustainable quality of teacher education and in-service professional learning in Turkey through collaboration, open exchange of practice, research, standards, and advocacy in all stages and levels of education.
For some time now, we have all been working with a new digital generation who are very different from the Millennials before them. These learners – born between 1996 and 2014 – are not only technologically savy, having been born into a world of internet and smartphones, but also independent, self-reliant and confident. Speedy access to unlimited readily available information has produced a generation of learners with outstanding multitasking skills; learners who can process and absorb information within mere seconds and yet possess the shortest attention span ever.
Therefore, this year’s conference theme has been set as:
“Teaching Generation Z: Passing on the baton from K12 to University”
In addition to the annual conference, TESOL TURKEY the Pre-conference Event will take place on 28 November 2019, Thursday. It will also be hosted by Eskişehir Osmangazi University. Teacher trainers and the ones who aspire to be one are invited to the pre-conference event with the theme “Worst of me: Lessons learned from mistakes”.
