50 YEARS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT
The Regional Language Centre (RELC) organised its 53rd RELC International Conference in March 2018.
The aim of the conference was to:
- To provide academics and practitioners with a forum for sharing current research and best practices in English language teaching and assessment (ELTA)
- To engage in discussion and conversations on current trends and issues pertaining to ELTA
- To promote dialogue and mutual understanding about the complementary roles of “native” and “non-native” teachers of English
- To highlight ways to increase intercultural understanding through teaching methods and materials
- To review the role of technology in enhancing ELTA
- To discuss implications for language teacher education
