PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
The first two days (June 23 and 24) will be devoted to the professional development workshop. The workshop will address the multiple dimensions of language teaching and learning from vocabulary expansion to linguistic, socio-linguistic, and cultural knowledge to processing skills enhancement. It purports to deepen the teacher’s understanding of learning processes while dealing with the specifics of teaching and to broaden the use of pedagogy in the teaching of Korean.
Workshop can be organized by an individual or by a group, and their length can be approximately two hours for each panel. We urge the organizer to design the workshop to involve the audience in an active, hands-on, and participatory format.
Those who are interested in giving a workshop should submit a proposal of maximum three pages that includes the following information:
2. Teaching experience
3. Current position or status
4. A possible future appointment, if not currently teaching
5. Topic, rationale and purpose (benefits to you or your institution)
The proposal will be reviewed and selected on the basis of (i) relevance of the topic to this year’s theme or needs of the field, (ii) pedagogical soundness, and (iii) attention to audience engagement and participation.
You are invited to submit an abstract (maximum two pages) for a 30-minute presentation on any topic that is related to the enhancement of teaching Korean language, culture or literature. Some of the research areas that were suggested last year are repeated below:
