ELTA Newsletter: March – April 2018

 

Dear readers,

It is that time of the season, things are slowly wrapping up, the sun is getting stronger and stronger and our pupils and students are getting more and more impatient for the summer break to begin. And if we are to be honest as teachers, we are also looking forward to the end of the school year. Before you fully start to enjoy your well-deserved rest, we hope you will take a look at this issue of the Newsletter and that you will find many useful articles.

We wish to use this opportunity to present to you the new members of our team. We are pleased to say that a number of people were willing to join in and share the workload with the rest of us, which is much appreciated. Joining us from the next issue are: Olivera Ilić, Nevena Stoilkov, Aleksandra Jevtović, Jana Živanović and Stevan Mijomanović. Welcome!

We would very much appreciate it if you could send us your articles and texts at newsletter.elta@gmail.com.

From the Editorial Team

 

ELTA Journal Volume 2 No. 2

Dear colleagues,

ELTA is proud to present the second issue of ELTA Journal.

In this first issue, last December, we presented the ideas that have shaped the creation of ELTA Journal and, this year, we would like to introduce new ideas that have guided us in developing this issue. Our aim was to connect research and practice and to present some theoretical considerations in the field of ELT. Our journal is blind peer-reviewed, allowing our authors to have their articles rechecked, reevaluated and inspected by unbiased experts.

Carefully selected articles that we have prepared for you in this issue are written by teachers, associate professors and researchers in the ELT field. For some authors this is another way of reflecting on their practice and, for others, this is a form of teacher development.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue and we look forward to receiving your feedback and article contributions for our next issue.

Yours faithfully,

ELTA Journal Editorial Team

ELTA Journal – Call for Papers for English Teachers in Serbia

Dear fellow teachers,

The ELTA Newsletter editorial team is proud to inform you that ELTA is initiating a new online publication – ELTA Journal. We invite primary and secondary school teachers as well as their colleagues in private language schools to participate in this exciting new project.

This semi-academic journal will continue the rich tradition of ELTA newsletter and magazine MELT, which have been published since 2003 and readily accept papers of quality that can be theoretical or examples of individual teaching practice or research in the field of ELT.

The vision of this journal is to be submitted for scientific categorization to our Ministry of Education and thus promote our teaching profession and provide you, teachers, with a practical benefit from your contributions. ELTA Journal is meant to:

▪ help our local ELT community to deepen the understanding of its practice;

▪ promote sharing among professionals;

▪ allow teachers to gain points towards professional development

The journal will represent a unique knowledge bank, which you will refer to in order to gain a little more insight into theoretical backgrounds behind certain aspects of your work or get a glimpse of new ideas and latest methodologies you might implement in your own teaching. It will also publish foreign researchers’ papers which will internationalise it and put our teachers on a broader ELT map.

We hope you take this opportunity to analyse your own practice as teachers and consider a topic of your own interest for an article in the journal. Our team is at your disposal for guidance and support should you have doubts regarding any aspect of your writing, structure- or content-wise.

Please contact our team if you are interested at newsletter.elta@gmail.com

Yours sincerely,

ELTA Newsletter editorial team
