AATE and ALEA invite applications to present a 60, 45 or 35 minute Workshop or a 35 minute Research Paper to assist English and literacy educators explore our Conference Strands:
as they relate to high quality English and literacy learning experiences.
A Workshop session typically involves an element of interactive activity for participants. The presenter could explore issues and ideas and their implementation in their own setting or explore strategies to add to a teacher's repertoire. The interactive component could involve a question and answer or panel session, participant trialling of strategies, group problem solving or workshopping of ideas and techniques. Workshops will be scheduled during concurrent sessions on the conference program. (60, 45 & 35 minutes)
Research extracts will be reviewed by members of the Program Committee. No facility for full review of papers is available. Presenters are encouraged to develop papers that emphasise the benefits of research and research findings for the teaching community. (35 minutes)
We are also offering a new presentation style in 2017: a dynamic 8 minute presentation accompanied by a maximum of 20 slides. These presentations will be delivered in an auditorium as a series related to our conference strands. The Cutting Edge Talks will be filmed by the Conference Committee and must contain non-copyrighted material. All images must belong to the presenter, have permission for publication or be drawn from Creative Commons sites.
All submissions will be acknowledged and a decision made by early March.
Please note that presenters will be required to pay for registration to the conference.
