18th ELTA Serbia Conference: First plenary speaker announced

We’re pleased to announce our first plenary speaker for the 18th ELTA Serbia Conference!

Kevin McCaughey is the Regional English Language Officer (RELO), based at the US Embassy in Belgrade. RELO Belgrade supports teacher development in Serbia and fifteen other countries.  Kevin has published articles in numerous journals, including English Teaching Forum. In 2010, he became the first to present an international webinar for American English. These days his teaching interests include learning through movement, song, improvisation, creative writing, and games.

At the Conference he will be speaking about The Future of English and the Educational Space.

The plenary discusses how English is changing: the perception of the language, and the way we teach English to meet the needs of a global market and to develop skills needed for jobs of the future. He will also take a critical look at the design of schools and classrooms, which have changed little in two centuries. What changes will happen in the years to come? Most important, what can teachers do now to be part of the change they want to see.

Join us in Belgrade in May 2020 to hear Kevin and a host of other brilliant and inspirational speakers.

We will be announcing more plenary speakers in the coming weeks so keep a lookout for further news articles or add yourself to the event page for the up-to-date information on conference arrangements, speakers etc.
