We are pleased to announce that an international conference: FROM
TEACHING TO LEARNING: CURRENT TRENDS IN ELT will be held in Tetovo,
Macedonia, 9-11 April,2010

English language teachers in Macedonia and in the Balkans generally face
many challenges in teaching English as a Foreign Language. Traditional
teaching methodologies have, over the past few years, come increasingly
under scrutiny and teachers have had to adapt to new teaching models which
emphasize active, task-based learning and which integrate modern
technologies into the classroom. New trends in teaching constantly challenge
educators and it is only through dialogue with fellow practitioners that
educators can themselves learn and develop their professional skills.
Conferences
are obviously a good opportunity to foster a continuing professional
dialogue amongst English language teachers.

This is why, in the eighth year of its operation, South East European
University now invites proposals for an international conference to be held
in Tetovo, on the theme: *“FROM TEACHING TO LEARNING: CURRENT TRENDS IN ELT”
*. The aim of this conference is to bring together English language teachers
from South East Europe and elsewhere to exchange views and present research
on the many issues and challenges ELT professionals face in the context of
modern trends in education. This conference will be an excellent opportunity
for classroom practitioners to learn and share ideas, research findings and
teaching philosophies.

The conference objectives are:

To exchange ideas about current teaching methods

To explore issues related to learner autonomy

To narrow the gap between teaching and research

To review the role of English Language in a changing world
To examine new trends in ELT

We invite the following types of proposals:

A) Paper: (30 minutes) which includes 20 minute presentation and 10
minutes question/answer time. It should discuss what the presenter is doing
or has done in relation to theory and practice.

B) Workshop: (40 minutes) The workshop leader should aim to involve the
participants in activities which help the participants solve problems or
develop specific teaching techniques. A step by step procedure of the
workshop along with a short description of activities should be outlined.

Please send proposals (special form) to the following e-mail address:
