TESOL-SPAIN 43rd Annual National Convention
Call for Papers now open for the 2020 TESOL-SPAIN Conference on English Teaching in Salamanca, Spain!
The 2020 convention theme “Breaking barriers: make it happen, make it matter!” invites us to reflect on the
powerful forces that contribute to modern life, including the emergence of Artificial Intelligence with its unforeseeable impact on our lives. Students must be prepared for the demands of this “brave new world” by learning useful and relevant knowledge, skills, character qualities and learning strategies. However,
we face many challenges as educators and the barriers to education are still many and varied and the perceived vulnerability of certain social groups requires timely solutions.
Reaffirming the right to education of every individual, enshrined in the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights and renewing the commitment of the World Conference on Special Needs Education held in Salamanca in 1994, TESOL-SPAIN welcomes presentations which deal with creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, multiculturalism, special educational needs and inclusive practices as well as those which are of wide general interest for language teachers working in different sectors and with students of all ages.
