This is for anyone researching teaching and learning at tertiary level, so many of you may have work to share. However, it is not based on 20-minute displays of work, but on a much briefer presentation of what you have done followed by discussion (which you set up and guide), so it's a great way to air ideas:
The 2017 Tertiary Education in New Zealand Conference will be held at Massey University in Palmerston North from 29 Nov - 1 Dec (http://www.herdsa.org.nz/ternz/2017/ ). Submissions of abstracts are invited until 1 October. The conference registration is open now. A distinctive feature of this conference is its emphasis on creating time for discussion and space for reflection. Instead of traditional paper presentations, themes will be developed through a series of more extended convers! ations led by the presenter, in which all participants will have the opportunity to play an equal part to promote discussion and sharing of ideas.
The second annual International Conference on Multilingualism and Multilingual Education (ICMME 2018) will be held in New Westminster (Metro Vancouver), BC, Canada on May 31- June 2, 2018. The conference is organized by MultiLingNet, and hosted by Douglas College, Canada.
The conference considers all aspects of the linguistic and sociolinguistic competences and practices of bi-/multilingual speakers who cross existing social and linguistic boundaries, adopting or adapting themselves to new and overlapping linguistic spaces.
We invite papers in all areas of research in bi-/multilingualism, whether or not linked directly to the overarching conference theme, including, but not limited to, linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, clinical linguistics, education, bi- /multilingual societies.
