NALDIC’s 27th annual conference will focus on inclusive practices in multilingual classrooms and on assessing and supporting EAL and SEND learners in the mainstream. The day will provide an opportunity to network with other professionals in the EAL field and purchase resources exhibited by NALDIC and a selection of other publishers.
We are pleased to invite proposals for NALDIC’s 27th annual conference ‘Inclusive practices in multilingual classrooms: assessing and supporting EAL and SEND learners in the mainstream’ which will take place at King’s College London, Waterloo campus.
We are encouraging proposals from colleagues with clear experience of working in the EAL/SEND field – as a teacher, researcher or teacher educator. We are inviting proposals for Workshops, Papers and Poster Presentations which are about furthering our professional thinking and disseminating relevant knowledge and skills.
Guidelines for proposals:
- Workshops: These longer sessions are designed to be a more interactive session. These can include more than one presenter/leader and could be organized around a key theme/issue (60 minutes including Q&A, AV equipment provided)
- Papers: These more traditional presentations are designed to be less interactive in nature and can be used to report on research findings/classroom practice etc. (30 minutes including Q&A, AV equipment provided)
- Posters: These paper-based posters are designed to provide opportunities to present an overview of research/classroom practice to be displayed during the conference (designated sessions throughout the day, poster boards provided)
**SUBMISSIONS NOW CLOSED**
- Deadline for proposals: Friday 2nd August 2019
- Notification of acceptance: Monday 16th September 2019
As for all annual conferences, NALDIC will select proposals that clearly address the conference theme and reflect a balance in delegate interests – phase, sector and research. NALDIC is a charity and Workshops, Paper and Poster presentations may not be used to promote products for sale.
The decision about workshops, paper and poster presentations will be made by NALDIC’s Executive and Events Committees.
