Tishreen University in Lattakia, Syria is organising its 3rd International Conference on Language Teaching Development in Higher Education on 4-5 May 2011 with Professor Adrian Holliday lined up as keynote speaker.
The main themes of the conference include curriculum development, evaluation and assessment, culture and language learning and technology-based language teaching. Deadline for speaker proposals is 15 January.
In January 2011, state sector trainers, teacher educators and members of regional and international teacher associations will come together to share best practices on teacher education programmes and to connect with other practitioners for professional development and networking.
