4th Annual Asian Conference on Language Learning (ACLL) 2014 Osaka

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR) in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity and insti­tu­tional part­ners is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Asian Con­fer­ence on Lan­guage Learn­ing 2014, to be held from April 17 – 20 2014, at the Rihga Royal Hotel and the adjoin­ing Osaka Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­ter (OICC) in Osaka, Japan.

    What bet­ter place than the ACLL 2014 con­fer­ence to con­nect with like-​minded teach­ers and researchers, to learn about cur­rent trends and cut­ting edge devel­op­ments, and to grow as a teacher, as a researcher, as a mem­ber of the pro­fes­sion? ACLL 2014 is the place to hear about best prac­tices as they are imple­mented in lan­guage class­rooms around the world, and with IAFOR con­fer­ences reg­u­larly attract­ing par­tic­i­pants from 40 coun­tries, ACLL 2014 promises to offer the same oppor­tu­ni­ties for net­work­ing whether it is dur­ing ses­sions, over cof­fee dur­ing a break, or at the con­fer­ence dinner.

    As always, we invite lan­guage edu­ca­tors, admin­is­tra­tors, pol­icy mak­ers, and oth­ers to join us at ACLL 2014 as we share what we are doing indi­vid­u­ally and as a com­mu­nity of teach­ers mak­ing our mark on society.

    The aim of this Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence is to encour­age aca­d­e­mics, schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers rep­re­sent­ing a excit­ing diver­sity of coun­tries, cul­tures, and reli­gion to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encour­ag­ing respect­ful dia­logue. By bring­ing together a num­ber of uni­ver­sity schol­ars work­ing through­out Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACLL 2014 will afford the oppor­tu­nity for renew­ing old acquain­tances, mak­ing new con­tacts, and net­work­ing across higher edu­ca­tion and beyond.

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    The con­fer­ence theme is “Indi­vid­ual, Com­mu­nity, Soci­ety: Con­nect­ing, Learn­ing and Grow­ing”, and the orga­niz­ers encour­age sub­mis­sions that approach this theme from a vari­ety of per­spec­tives. How­ever, the sub­mis­sion of other top­ics for con­sid­er­a­tion is wel­come and we also encour­age ses­sions within and across a vari­ety of dis­ci­plines and fields related to Lan­guage Learn­ing and Teach­ing, includ­ing the fol­low­ing streams:
