13 -15 July - The 2017 Asia TEFL conference

The 2017 Asia TEFL conference will be held at Royal Ambarrukmo Hotel in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The 15th International Asia TEFL Conference is, in general, designed to pull together a number of current and critical issues for TEFL researchers, policy makers and practitioners. They work with the complexity of making significant change in TEFL policies, beliefs and practices to improve the TEFL effectiveness for all students in this post-colonial and post-modern era. They also encourage EFL teachers to adjust to changing contexts over time with the focus of serving their students. In this connection, the conference will provide them with ample opportunity to share their experiences and expertise. In particular, this conference is designed to share and examine contemporary conceptions of language learning and teaching and of their change over time leading an awareness of the need to build language learning and teaching theories with a new paradigm. The 15th International Asia TEFL conference is designed to provide a forum for EFL teaching and learning researchers, policy makers and practitioners to assemble in the spirit of "learning and growing together" to:

  • engage in an informed, critical and insightful dialogue about enhancing learning for all students in all settings in all countries, a dialogue about what works, how it works, what it takes to make things work, and how to develop thereon a new understanding of the nature of EFL teaching and learning.
  • strengthen national and international EFL education networks to promote powerful research about TEFL effectiveness, TEFL improvement and innovation and to engage EFL learning and teaching researchers, policy makers and practitioners in ongoing conversations about the interpretation and the application of research in practice.
  • critically examine the strengths and weaknesses of different theoretical paradigms of language learning and to explore how different conceptions frame and influence the whole business of TEFL, especially in a global, knowledge-based, technologically wired context.
