Update on METU ELT Convention

Here is an update on the Convention.

Proposal submission period has ended. I have been getting phone calls asking whether participant registration is still possible. Of course! You can register yourself as an audience through this link http://dbe.metu.edu.tr/convention2012/registration.htm. Till 11 May 2012, the earlybird registration fee is 40Eur for one day and 80 Eur for the full three days. Please, fill in the registration form only after you send in the fee to our bank account (which can be found through the same link above) in Euros or TL. If you send in Turkish Lira, we accept the official exchange rate of the bank you use for transaction. As for the DBE instructors, on 9 - 10 May, there will be a pre-registration desk at Çiçek Hall (time to be announced later), where you can complete your registration.

Here are important dates:

This year, we are holding a panel discussion on Teacher Education/Professional Development during the Convention. Five panelists will get together to discuss challenges, issues, solutions, etc on this topic.Do share your ideas, questions or suggestions on teacher education and professional development. You can post them here or to the Convention e-mail: elt2012@metu.edu.tr.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Convention!
