ACTA International Conference Oct 2018

English language learning in a mobile world
Adelaide, South Australia
2-5 October 2018

Hosted by SATESOL and ACTA

Driving attention to the reality of local and global mobility for TESOL learners and educators, this conference will contribute to the ongoing examination of the theories and practices underpinning the TESOL field, and will project into future directions, whether as policy, pedagogy, materials design, assessment or community involvement.
In the context of increasing mobility through digital technology as well as global unrest and greater recognition of the need for improved outcomes for Indigenous students, the conference offers an opportunity for a re-examination of the profile of our English language learners and the implications for TESOL practice.
