During June 2-4, 2011, Sabancı University School of Languages welcomed colleagues from 21 different countries to a collaborative exploration of the challenging and inspiring journey of learners and educators in the field of language education.
The conference provided an opportunity for all stakeholders to share their views on language education. Colleagues met with world-renowned experts and authors in the fields of education and psychology, faculty and administrators from various universities and institutions, teachers from secondary educational backgrounds and higher education, as well as learners whose voices are often not directly shared but usually reported.
The conference name, Eclipsing Expectations, was inspired by two natural phenomena, a solar eclipse directly before the conference, and a lunar eclipse, immediately after. Learners and educators were hereby invited to join a journey to observe, learn and exchange ideas in order.
In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Expectations Eclipsed in Foreign Language Education: Learners and Educators on an Ongoing Journey for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.
