Teachers Helping Teachers - Bangladesh English Language Teachers Association Teacher Training Conference 2022 In-person and via Zoom

We’ve decided to have the first day of the THT-Bangladesh English Language Teachers Association 2022 program online.  There will be a small team of THT volunteers traveling to Dhaka (and Chittagong), but we thought, with continued issues with travel restrictions, that making this opportunity available would benefit both our THT volunteers and our BELTA hosts.  The online portion of the program will take place on Friday, October 28th, from 12:00 noon – 6:00 pm (Japan time).

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 [at] and ct180 [at]  Acknowledgment of receipt will be made immediately and decisions on acceptance will be made within two weeks of reception.

Travel to Bangladesh, and lodgings in Dhaka, are paid by the THT volunteers, traditionally, travel costs within Bangladesh and lodging costs for the program outside of Dhaka are paid by BELTA.  There are numerous social functions and dinners during the stay and volunteers should expect a full schedule of events during the program. 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 [at]  with questions.
