ELTA Journal – Call for Papers [Deadline 15 Nov 2016]

2257

Deadline 15 November 2016

Dear fellow teachers,

We invite all ELT professionals to participate in our online publication – ELTA Journal. This semi-academic journal continues 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 represents 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 also publishes 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

14th ELTA Serbia Conference

Learning, relationships, and education are a painstaking endeavor, much like nurturing a garden. It takes time and effort to grow.

What best teachers do is, they teach people, not programs. They provide conditions for their students to grow. They pay attention to each and every student. They listen. They never stop learning. They adopt and adapt. They make a difference.

Are you one of those teachers?

What is obvious to you, might be amazing to others – share your knowledge and experience with us at 14th ELTA Conference!

Abstract submission deadline: 8 March 2016
Early bird registration deadline: 22 April 2016
