In a fast-changing world, the field of ELT has responded to a call for renovation by shifting paradigms about language learning to privilege communicative approaches and the implementation of student-centered methodologies to empower learners with important life skills. The social and cultural events developing in the world, the evolution of technology in education after the Covid 19 pandemic, and nature and pace of globalization have become the inspiring reality for policy makers, administrators, parents and teachers to rethink aspects such as learning spaces, the contents that matter in the curriculum and the means to measure successful learning. Our binational centers in Latin America cannot be excluded from this conversation.
ABLA 2023 will revolve around the lessons learned in recent years and their impact on our teaching practices. Join us for an event about the opportunities for growth that we can build together in the aftermath of a very demanding context. Under the title “Beyond New Challenges: Binational Centers and their Role in Transforming Language Teaching in Latin America,” we will discuss the expansion of our centers in the online world through new “hybrid” and “phygital” spaces. We will share insights about the social and emotional needs that impact our students’ academic success and the role that strong communities of practice play to help teachers with their professional development in diverse circumstances.
ABLA ELT cordially invites you; language teachers, administrators, teacher trainers, supervisors, and curriculum developers to envision the future of ELT in Latin America through the lenses of resilience, innovation, and solidarity.
