The CELC Symposium 2016 aims to provide a platform for examining how ELT, in higher education today, is multi-pedagogical, interdisciplinary and intercultural. Specifically, we are interested in papers that focus on connections between different disciplinary ideas and methods as well as socio-cultural, institutional and digital contexts that variously shape and are, in turn, enhanced by pedagogical engagements within the language and communication classroom. "Strengthening connectivities in ELT: pedagogies, disciplines, cultures" thus seeks to explore how the three paradigms are evolving and how they continually interact with and impact one another.
Possible focus areas:
- Curriculum design and materials development: EAP, WAC, content-focused writing, business and professional communication, embedded instruction
- Classroom pedagogies and practices: collaborative learning, flipped classrooms, multimodality, blended instruction
- Assessment: formative and summative evaluations, diagnostic and achievement testing, student feedback
- Language education and society: interpersonal and intercultural communicative competence in a global age, bilingual and multilingual education, ELT and ideology, language and power
