Upcoming events in Korea, Singapore

Teaching-English"A quick reminder of two major events coming up in Asia in the next week.

The Korea TESOL National Conference 2013 will be held this weekend, May 25-26, at the Korea National University of Education. The conference brings together several key concepts in contemporary TESOL (including professional development, second language acquisition, theory informing practice, classroom-centered research projects, and pedagogy) into a meaningful theme, Developing Professionally: Plug-and-Play SLA Pedagogy, which seeks to provide teachers with practical ideas that can be readily applied in their classrooms.

The international plenary speaker is Dr. Keith Folse, an internationally renowned scholar and lecturer. Perhaps best known for his many books on grammar, he is an Associate Professor of TESOL at the University of Central Florida. Invited guest speakers include Dr. Kim Jeong-Ryeol (President of the Korea Association of Foreign Languages Education) and Robert S. Murphy, a leading voice for “neuroELT” in Asia.
