ELT & ELL Conf Calendar (TG ver)

8

It’s been a while since I updated the infamous Conference Calendar – but with all the news I was seeing from BETT 2014 (a few weeks back) I thunked that I’d best get me skates on and do another update!

8

Those of you that know the ‘ole Blog, know that I try to keep my ear to the ground on all the lovely conference events that are coming up in…

Canım Türkiyem (TG Ver 03)

8

This year I started well early. I did Ver 1.0 of the Conference Calendar just after Summer couple of months back. After a few upgrades this evolved into the last version (Ver 3.1) in December – time for Ver 4.1!

8

Before we get to canım Türkiyemas you might also remember, I usually start with the ones that only the “rich kids” can go to!

8

As I said, 2014 has just kicked off with a “BIGGIE” – a very EdTech BIGGIE! So, I have removed the BETT event

8

Of course, the other upcoming “BIGGIES” are:

8

  • 13-15 March
  • TESOL Arabia (20th International Conference) – Hyatt Regency (Dubai, UAE)
  • Theme: Methods and Means in ELT

8

  • 26-29 March
  • TESOL 2014 – Portland, Oregon (International & EL Expo)
  • Theme: ELT for the Next Generation (See also #tesol14 on Twitter)

8

  • 02-05 April
  • IATEFL 2014 (48th Annual International IATEFL Conference & Exhibition) – Harrogate (International Conference Centre)
  • Theme: ELT for the Next Generation

8

8

…but, I also wanted to add a couple of others (that have great potential):

8

8

  • 03-09 August
  • Pilgrims – 40th Anniversary Conference, Kent University, Canterbury,
  • Theme: TBC (Details available soon) – @PilgrimsTT on Twitter)

STOP PRESS…Sadly, we got word last week that Pilgrims have decided to postpone this event. The good news is that they already have plans to try and pull it off in Summer 2015!

8

but...

8

…I know why you have really come to this post…the conferences and events where we can get some decent çay and (even a simit):

8

8

Seriously, have you ever had a simit in London…in Ireland…in Harrogate (!)

…just don’t get me started on that crappy “tea” they serve there…!

8

Türküz, Doğruyuz, Çalışkanız…ve daha güzel çay (da) yaparız!

8

Canım Türkiyem has been building up a great reputation for its events over the past few years. The çay and simit help, of course, but it is the sheer range of our events that really does the job…and the dedication of the teams that put these events on!

8

So, without further ado – here are the ones we currently have on the calendar, thus far:
