The Image Conference to be held in Malta

Valletta-Malta-Image-Conference

I am delighted to announce that the 5th edition of the Image Conference is being held as the pre-conference event to the 5th ELT Malta Conference. The Image Conference will be held on 6 October while the 5th ELT Malta Conference will be held on 7-8 October at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta, Malta. Both conferences are being organised by the Maltese ELT Council.

I am very proud to be the founder of The Image Conference which is the only conference in the world exclusively on the use of image in ELT. So far the conference has been held in Barcelona in conjunction with UAB Idiomes, Brasilia in conjunction with BRAZ-TESOL, Cordoba Spain in collaboration with IH Córdoba, and in Munich in collaboration with the Munich English Teachers’ Association. It is held in a different city every year. The two key aims of the conference are to put media and images at the centre of the language learning agenda, and to offer guidance on using media and images critically and creatively in language teaching in the age of the Internet.

Speaker proposals for talks and workshops can be submitted until 31 May 2016 by filling it the Call for Papers form on  Google Forms.

All proposals for the Image Conference must be related to the use of images in English language teaching and learning. Topics can include:
• images
• video
• film
• gaming
• art
• mental imagery.

 

I look forward to seeing you at our innovative conference in beautiful Malta.
