Teachers Helping Teachers 2020 in Kyrgyzstan: Beyond the Language Classroom

Teachers Helping Teachers (THT), in cooperation with Bishkek Humanities University (BHU) and the Kyrgyz Foreign Language Teachers Association (FORUM), will conduct a series of seminars and workshops in the capital of Bishkek and other areas of the Kyrgyz Republic. This is THT’s 12th annual visit to Central Asia, and our tentative dates are September 7th (FORUM Naryn Chapter), 10th (FORUM Bishkek Chapter) and 10th to 11th (Bishkek State University - Formely Bishkek Humanities University). Volunteers may attend all three programs or just the Bishkek portion. The theme of the conference is Beyond the Language Classroom.

 

The organizers would like each person to submit three proposals out of which two and possibly three might be given.   Traditionally, our teacher-training conferences, seminars and workshops exhibit practical, student and teacher-friendly approaches to language education that are informed by current research in the field.  Please keep this in mind when creating your proposals. 

 

Regarding our audience, presenters can expect a mix of junior high school, high school, and university educators. We occasionally have primary school educators in attendance also. You may specify a target audience for each presentation but should expect a mix of teachers in the audience. A repeat of your Bishkek program presentation(s) might be acceptable for the Karakol program. Presentation proposals should be sent to the conference coordinators, Brent Jones bjones [at] konan-u.ac.jp and Roger Palmer roger88 [at] mac.com. Acknowledgment of receipt will be made immediately and decisions on acceptance will be made within two weeks of reception. Once your proposals have been received and accepted, information about accommodations and travel arrangements will be forwarded to participants. Feel free to contact the coordinators with questions.
