1st SKA ELT Conference – Call for Speaker Proposals!

Conference poster

The Slovak Chamber of English Teachers (SKA) is excited to invite English teachers from Slovakia, central Europe and around the world to share their expertise at its inaugural ELT conference the 25th and 26th of September 2015 with Péter Medgyes, Barbara Hoskins Sakamoto and David Fisher at the Faculty of Arts, Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia. (Registration for participants starts 1 June 2015.)

Call for Speakers

We at SKA believe that both teaching and learning are collaborative processes. We learn from each other, as well as learn better together. Our teaching can also be better informed by sharing our experiences, our insights, our wisdom, and our challenges with each other.

And so, we invite YOU to share those practical tips and insights in teaching English that you have learned and used with your students and in your classrooms. We’d like to hear what you have discovered works with your learners.

For our first year, we have decided to focus on 4 areas which we feel would be of interest to our ELT teachers in Slovakia:


  • Teaching Teens and Adults
  • Teaching Young Learners
  • Teaching Business English
  • Using Drama in ELT

We welcome proposals for 45-minute workshops relating to any of those four areas.

Definition of ‘workshop’:

  • A practical presentation which shows, rather than tells, an ELT technique/activity/idea that can be used later in the classroom or for personal professional growth. The speaker involves participants through hands-on activities.

To send in your proposal, please fill out the form here.

Deadline: 15 June 2015

We look forward to hearing from you!
