22nd AsiaTEFL International Conference

2024-04-07 13:40:00

The 22nd AsiaTEFL International Conference will be held on November 15-17, 2024 in Chiang Rai, Thailand. AsiaTEFL conferences have been held annually in various Asian countries, with ELT practitioners, policymakers and researchers gathering to share their academic and scholarly works and knowledge, and to create global networks and bonds. This year’s theme, ‘Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity in ELT”, is set to inspire and share visions of equity, diversity, and inclusivity in Asian ELT contexts by reflecting on and examining the present issues and topics and anticipating the future of ELT in Asia.

In pursuit of this aim, we invite special speakers from diverse Asian countries and beyond. In addition to the invited speakers’ talks, the program will offer multiple types of presentations, including research-driven papers, workshops, colloquia/symposia and poster sessions. We are deeply grateful to any potential presenters who will submit their proposals in response to our conference call and for sharing their research outcomes and insightful ideas with all conference participants.

Many thanks should be given to the 2024 Conference Organizing Committee, who have volunteered for their assistance to make the conference happen again this year. Last but certainly not least, we would like to express special thanks to the AsiaTEFL presidents whose tremendous devotion and dedication to the entire process of organizing the conference enrich these meaningful events with their meticulous consideration and wealth of experience.
