The Curtin University School of Education and the Modern Language Teachers’ Association of Western Australia (MLTWA) invite papers for the 4th Biannual Conference on Applied Linguistics / 2018 MLTAWA Biennial State Conference to be held at Curtin University 20-21 July 2018. The conference is designed for teachers and pre-service teachers of Languages and EALD, students of Linguistics and academics. The theme of the Conference is ‘Making Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) Work in the Classroom’ which we would like to explore from a variety of local, national and international perspectives, and provide a balance of theory and practice. Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT) is an approach which offers students opportunities to actively engage in communication in order to achieve a goal or complete a task. TBLT seeks to develop students’ interlanguage through providing a task and then using language to solve it.
Keynote speakers for the Conference include:
We welcome submissions from practising language educators at all levels of education, researchers, pre-service teachers and postgraduate students, as well as others with a languages focus for the concurrent sessions. Please use the following form to submit a proposal for a session. If you have multiple proposals, please repeat the process.
The closing date for submissions is 31 May, 2018.
