52nd NATIONAL CONGRESS

CALL FOR PAPERS

ASOCOPI has been involved in practices that aim at improving the teaching of English in Colombia for more than fifty years. Through its history, the association has been at the forefront of innovations, new trends, and best practices.  

Being aware that teaching a language goes beyond teaching structures, tenses, nouns, adjectives, the four skills, and competences, our commitment for this year's congress is to encourage English teachers to actively participate in the construction of peace and social justice. We are absolutely sure that English teachers in Colombia engage in practices inside and outside the classroom that aim at having a better world for everyone.  

The spirit of this year´s congress is to bring together all those experiences in which teachers use the English class and the English language as a vehicle to explore issues of inclusion, of acknowledgment of diversity, of how peace is lived and understood in different contexts and regions in the country. As such we will be happy to receive contributions that adopt different pedagogical and research approaches to  systematize  all those practices carried out by English teachers. 

Last year we introduced two colloquia and this year we are bringing this space again. Scholars interested in putting colloquia together should send the theme for their colloquia and short abstracts of each one of the papers that will take part in them.
