IMPORTANT: Please read Reglamento Congreso FAAPI Chapter 2: Academic matters at http://www.faapi.org.ar/informacion/congreso-faapi/reglamento/

Types of presentations:

1. Paper

A paper tells the participants something about what the presenter is doing or has done in relation to theory and practice. Time: 25-minute Paper + 5-minute Q & A.

2. Workshop

A workshop is a session in which there is active audience participation via the experiencing and discussing of tasks suggested by the presenter(s). Most of the time available should be devoted to demonstrating materials or activities that have been developed and tried out by the presenter(s). Theoretical discussion is usually kept to a minimum. Time: 55-minute Workshop + 5-minute Q & A

3. Discussion group

A discussion group provides an opportunity for a group of individuals (typically three to five) to propose a specific issue or topic in the field of the Conference themes and examine it from a variety of perspectives. Total presentation time is limited to 50 minutes to ensure that at least part of the session engages presenters and the audience in extended dialogue. The lead presenter is responsible for contacting all co-presenters with information concerning the Conference and presentations. All presenters should be registered at the Conference before the given deadline.

4. Good practice report

A good practice report describes exemplary classroom experiences and lessons learnt when teaching English to a variety of students, ranging from very young learners to adults. Teachers will participate in groups of not more than 10. Each group will deal with a certain instructional topic, for example: descriptions of teaching materials, experiences at different institutional contexts, ESP and Teacher Education across different proficiency levels. Each teacher will be allotted 5 minutes to tell their story, through which they will share the why, what and how of their best teaching practice.

  4. A summary of approximately 250 – 350 words that provides a clear understanding of the presentation’s content. The summary should outline exactly what presenters are going to talk about in the session and how the session will be structured.

  • You have not given this session, or a version of this session, at a previous academic event.
  • It is clear from your summary that you have something new to say or that you plan to shed new light on a topic which has been aired at other conferences and in print. It should also be clear that you have taken into account the level of knowledge of the expected audience you indicate in the presenter’s form.
  • If your presentation relies heavily on a description of your local situation, ensure that you discuss either the implications for people working in similar contexts, or its general relevance.
  • Proposals with more than one author will be included in the programme only if all the authors are registered at the conference before the given deadline for presenters.

Authors whose evaluation forms recommend publication are invited to submit a paper based on their presentation (between 2,500-3,200 words, inclusive of references, tables, and appendices) before 15th July. These papers will be reviewed by the Selected Papers editors who will inform authors whether their articles are accepted as is, accepted with modifications, or rejected. This process is different from inclusion in the conference programme, that is, a presentation may be included in the programme but the paper may not be part of the Selected Papers. This is due to the different nature and aims of an oral presentation and an academic manuscript. Note that the ultimate decision to include a contribution is in the hands of the Editors. The Selected Papers e-book will only include between 20-22 papers. Papers should be submitted by no later than 15thJuly to [email protected]
