Proposals are invited for individual paper sessions, workshops and symposia.
Paper sessions are presented by one or more authors. Approximately 30 minutes will be allocated per presentation (including 20 minutes for the presentation, 5 minutes for Q & A, and 5 minutes for movement of participants from one session to the next).
Workshops provide an opportunity for an extensive discussion between presenter(s) and participants on a specific topic, subject or project. They tend to have a practical or hands-on orientation, and are beneficial for the conduct and in-depth sharing of proven classroom practice and pedagogy.
Symposia are integrated presentations by a team on a specific issue, study or practice. Each symposium should focus on a well-structured theme or a set of inter-related research questions. Within each symposium, each paper presentation provides data or arguments that address those questions. Each symposium submission requires an integrative statement describing the overall theme of the symposium and the connections among the various presentations.
Each symposium comprises one of the following formats:
English. Presentations in Mandarin, Malay, Tamil or other languages are also welcome but abstracts must be submitted in English. The language of presentation, if it is not English, must be indicated in the abstract.
The abstract (not more than 350 words) must be in English and should include aims, methodology and findings (or its equivalent). Symposia organizers should provide an abstract for each paper presentation in addition to an overall abstract (300-350 words) for the symposium.
