TESL Canada invites you to submit a proposal to present at the TESL Canada 2012 conference October 11-13, 2012. The conference will be held at Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops, British Columbia.
The theme for the conference, TESL Interiors: Landscapes of Literacies and Language, is one reflective of the multiple dimensions of communication and language education. Presentations can cover any of the diverse areas of inquiry related to TEAL and Teacher Education. The Call for Papers and online submission form are available at: http://www.tru.ca/tc2012/call.html
In addition to numerous concurrent sessions, confirmed keynote speakers include: Dr. Steven Pinker (http://www.stevenpinker.com), and for the Graduate Students Symposium, Penny Ur.
A range of conference information can be found at http://www.tru.ca/tc2012.
If you are a student or supervising graduate students, the Graduate Students Symposium may be of particular interest as this one-day, pre-conference event will bring together those studying in certificate, diploma, masters and doctoral programs from across the country and beyond.
Joe Dobson and Karen Densky, TESL Canada conference co-chairs, say their goals in hosting the conference are to organize a meaningful and memorable event. “We look forward to seeing many colleagues from around the province, country and beyond at TESL Canada 2012.”
