Organized by the Linguistics and TESOL graduate students and faculty, the TESOL /Applied Linguistics Graduate Students Conference aims to provide a serious but relaxed environment for graduate students and professionals working in TESL/TEFL/FL and a variety of applied linguistics fields to present their work, receive feedback, and network. The TALGS Conference provides graduate students as well as TESOL and other Foreign Language professionals (including ESOL, TESL, EFL, ESL, TEFL, Spanish, French, German, DLI, etc.) a forum to showcase their research and successful teaching practices.
The next TALGS will be held February 15, 2014, at Western Carolina University. The theme is Research Meets Practice & Practice Meets Research. The organizers welcome proposals relevant to language use, learning, and/or teaching. Sample fields include applied linguistics & education (e.g., teaching ESL/EFL, English language learners in mainstream classrooms, immersion/dual language programs, or content-based teaching models), English studies, discourse, foreign languages, sociolinguistics, and corpus linguistics. Presentations on action research (inside and outside the classroom), reports on successful teaching practices, works in progress, as well as proposals for discussion sessions and workshops will be considered.
The deadline for proposal submission is Sunday, December 1, 2013.
