Back to School 2011 -- Call for participation -- Deadline for submissions extended to April 10

Due in part to the horrific earthquake and tsunami disasters and relief efforts in Tohoku, we have decided to extend the submission deadline for our Back to School event until April 10. We already have a relatively full slate of submissions but have plenty of room for more. We welcome submissions on a broad range of topics of relevance to language teachers and learners.

JALT’s Osaka Chapter, in collaboration with the Framework and Language Portfolio SIG and Task Based Learning SIG, invites submissions for this year’s Back to School event, to be held April 24 at Osaka Gakuin University.

Our goal is to exchange a wide range of ideas of practical application on a wide range of topics. Submissions for poster presentations and 25-minute presentations are invited on any topic related to the theory and/or practice related to Task-Based Learning, the Common European Framework (CEFR) and related pedagogical practices, or any topic of interest or practical application to classroom language teachers. Some double time-slots will likely be possible, space permitting.

Submissions should be emailed to by March 20 April 10, and should include a title of 12 words or less, a summary of 60 words or less, a brief bio blurb including background and place of employment of presenter of 30 words or less, and the type and time of presentation preferred (ie poster presentation, or 25- or 50-minute presentation time-slot).
