CALL FOR PAPERS

This is our call for papers for the upcoming online annual NATESOL conference, entitled "TESOL Today: Local, Global, Equal and Open". Our conference aims to provide a space for practitioners from all TESOL contexts to come together to share ideas, examples of practice, research, and discussion around the shape of TESOL as it is and as we want it to be.

The last two years have seen a change in perspective for many, with a greater concern for equity, inclusion and social justice arising from shared experiences. Our focus is on how TESOL is rising to the challenges posed by the times. Should TESOL now be moving beyond teaching language? How do we bring social concern and fight for justice into our classrooms? Can we? Should we? What does a truly inclusive TESOL classroom look like? How do we address challenges of sustainability? How TESOL today be empowering for the future, in and beyond the classroom?

Themes which presenters may wish to address:

● Equity and Justice

● Inclusion and accessibility

● Multi/pluri-lingual pedagogies

● Pedagogies of care

● Agency and empowerment

● Learners as partners

● Globalisation

● Sustainability

● Decolonisation

And other topics which respond to the challenges outlined above.

The 2022 NATESOL conference provides the opportunity to address some of these questions, to share practice, and meet fellow teachers in a friendly and open atmosphere.

We welcome proposals from practising ELT professionals which will be of practical interest to our membership. We encourage presentations where learners are partners and from first time presenters. Mentoring is available for presenters.

We invite individual or joint proposals for interactive talks of 30 minutes (plus 10 mins Q&A) or shorter presentations of 15 minutes (plus 5 mins Q&A).
