Time to Event


Acıbadem Schools is pleased to announce that Acıbadem Schools Engage & Foster Learning ELT Conference will take place on December 14th, 2019. The event welcomes presenters and participants who are interested in language teaching and learning.

As teachers of English, we share a common goal of preparing our students to effectively communicate and actively collaborate with people around the world in the English language. Acıbadem Schools’ education philiosophy is based on a learner-centred approach which allows the students’ individual needs and differences to be discovered, understood and fostered.

Acıbadem Schools Engage&Foster Learning ELT Conference will be the platform where all teachers can share their ideas, knowledge, and experiences with English language teaching and learning.

The conference aims to support teachers in deepening a learner-centered approach demonstrating that learners need to be emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially engaged while learning. We intend to enrich our students’ education by collaborating, discussing, and exploring to combine a digital platform with traditional forms of teaching to make classroom activities more interesting by adding innovative teaching practices, imaginative thinking and ideas and creative learning techniques.

We cordially invite you to attend our very first ELT Conference.
