The 7th Annual Tech Day Plus at Hannan University (June 19, 2011)

The themes of Tech Day+ are simplicity and practicality - ideas that language teachers and learners can use either in or out of the classroom. In addition to our "Tech" presentations that will take place in fully equipped computer labs, we'll have a wide range of other presentations on non-technical topics in the "Plus" rooms.

Tech Day+ has grown to be one of Osaka JALT's biggest and best events of the year, including a great dinner party afterwards. Our goal is to share ideas on a wide range of technical and nontechnical topics.

Submissions for 25-minute presentations are invited on any topic of potential interest or practical application to language teachers and learners. Some 45- or 60-minute time-slots will also likely be possible, space permitting.

The deadline for submissions is May 30, 2011 (Monday).

Presentation requests accepted HERE.

Presentations and poster sessions should attempt to connect current neuro-research with EFL in theory, practice, or both. Interested? Send in your proposals (2-3 paragraphs max) and your academic bio. Email proposals to
