LEADING TO CHANGES IN ELT: FROM PRACTICE TO THEORY

Dear Participants

Fatih University Prep School holds its 5th International ELT Conference, entitled “LEADING TO CHANGES IN ELT: FROM PRACTICE TO THEORY” on Saturday 9th June, 2012.

Fatih University Prep School continuously seeks out new themes and practices in language teaching. FELT2012 Conference’s aim is to create a reflective setting in which teachers can associate all their ways of teaching with theories and practices, which will possibly lead to changes in the minds of the participants.

Theories help teachers incorporate new insights and new ways into their teaching repertoires. But, who tells these theories? Why do teachers not tell their own theories that they gain throughout the years? FELT2012 will uncover current routines, theories and “ways of seeing” so that each participant can tell out his/her own practices by sharing, reflecting and negotiating. Plenary speakers and experts on the field will welcome all the questions in the Q&A session at the end of the program.

FELT2012 will host book exhibitions and student poster presentations.

You are all cordially invited to this once in a year FELT2012 Conference.

Yours Sincerely,
Organization Committee
