             CALL FOR PAPERS – Workshops and Seminars

Proposals are invited for workshops and seminars at this conference. The
deadline for proposals is November 30th 2011; proposers will receive
feedback by January 31st 2012.

We are keen to receive as many proposals as possible. Presenters are also
invited to submit a version of their work to one of NATE’s publications.

Workshops – length: two hours
We are seeking to present a range of workshops for teachers covering age
ranges from primary to post-16, a number of aspects of mainstream English
teaching and a number of specialist areas. Workshops should provide
interactive sessions involving participants in practical work and discussion.

Workshop presenters will be entitled to a discount of £125 from any chosen
conference attendance package.

This only applies to one presenter per workshop and not co-presenters.

Seminars – length: one hour
Seminar sessions are intended to provide the opportunity for presenters to
disseminate ideas about resources, methods, ideas or issues in a different
format from workshops or research papers for a mixed audience. The session
may take the form of a demonstration or talk with opportunities for questions
or discussion. Workshop and research presenters are welcome to offer a
seminar too.

Further guidance on workshops and seminars is available from Ian McNeilly
( Completed proposals should be sent to Ian by
email. Please include your name when creating the file name. There is a
separate application process for the conference’s research strand. Please
contact Ian for details. See overleaf for the proposal form for workshops and
