Venue: İstanbul BİLGİ University, santralistanbul Campus. İstanbul, Turkey

Closing Date for Proposals: April 3, 2015

İstanbul BİLGİ University’s English Language Programs take great pleasure in announcing the İstanbul Bilgi University ELT Conference, the fifth stage of what we started in 2008. The conference theme is “The Post-Method Era in ELT” under the main title, which indicates our overall goal: ‘Joint Forces Joint Goals: An Open Invitation to Collaboration in ELT.’ The conference will take place at the santralistanbul Campus on May 9, 2015. 

In the field of English Language Teaching, teachers have always been searching for the best method through which they could make their classroom learning environment a more efficient and effective one.  Therefore, they have demanded that the method they have chosen fit all teaching/learning contexts and be for all students. However, it is not likely that there is one unique method in language teaching that appeals to all learning environments. For this reason we selected The Post-Method Era in ELT as the theme of this year’s conference.

Please join us in helping participants find their own path by sharing your own findings and good practices around the main theme. Presenters are invited to deliver a 50-minute presentation on the following:

The Role of Teachers in the Post Method Era

Technology and the New Era

New Generation Students as Learners

Brain Research and Language Learning

The Effects of Context in Language Learning

Motivational and Affective Factors in Language Learning

Cognitive Variables Affecting Language Learning

Effective Language Input – What this really is

Learning/Learner variables in ELT
