Teachers Helping Teachers & Bangladesh English Language Teachers Association Conference on Language Education 2017:
New Techniques for a Classic Pedagogy: English Teaching in the 21st Century


The Teachers Helping Teachers/Bangladesh English Language Teachers Association (THT/BELTA) 11th Annual Conference on Language Education will be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from September 21st – 22nd, 2017. A program with the Sylhet BELTA chapter is being scheduled for September 24th. Volunteers will travel from Dhaka to Sylhet on September 23rd, and they will return to Dhaka on September 25th. Volunteers may go to one or both of the programs. This year the Dhaka program is being hosted by Southeast University.


The organizers would like each person to submit three proposals out of which two and possibly three might be given. Traditionally, our teacher-training conferences, seminars and workshops exhibit practical, student and teacher-friendly approaches to language education that are informed by current research in the field. Please keep this in mind when creating your proposals.


Regarding our audience, presenters can expect a mix of junior high school, high school, and university educators. We occasionally have primary school educators in attendance also. You may specify a target audience for your presentation, but should expect a mix of teachers in the audience. A repeat of your Dhaka program presentation(s) might be acceptable for the external program. Presentation proposals should be sent to the conference coordinator, Pat Dougherty at pdougherty@aiu.ac.jp and ct180@hotmail.com. Acknowledgement of receipt will be made immediately and decisions on acceptance will be made within two weeks of reception.


Once your proposals have been received and accepted, information about accommodations and travel arrangements will be forwarded to participants. Feel free to contact the coordinators, Pat Dougherty pdougherty@aiu.ac.jp or Steve Cornwell thtjalt@gmail.com with questions.
