Call for Participation

Big SIG Day – Start of the Year Event
The Amazing Teacher
24th  September 2017


The TESOL Greece SIGs
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are an integral part of the TESOL Greece vibrant community of ELT professionals. Their purpose and function is to afford TESOL Greece members specific opportunities to share information or research in specialized fields. Our four SIGs, have been established and supported by certain TESOL Greece members who wish to hone their skills within a particular area or specialization of TEFL.

The call for participation
This year TESOL Greece invites you to submit a presentation proposal relevant to one of our 4 SIGs:

  • Adult Learners
  • Drama & Literature
  • Learning Technologies
  • Young Learners

What topics are encouraged?
The focus of the event is on teaching practices that can have amazing results, sometimes with few resources and shows how teachers can overcome difficulties to pass on knowledge, motivate, improvise and how they can even become magicians to instigate their students to move on. The amazing teacher is also the caring teacher that teaches empathy, helping students to develop their emotional intelligence and one that promotes collaboration in the classroom, and student autonomy in an effort to empower students.


Types of proposals
Workshop (45 minutes)

A Practice-Oriented presentation, which shows, rather than tells. The presenter helps participants solve a problem or develop a specific technique through a series of structured hands-on activities.
Talk (45 minutes)
A formal instructive talk given by (a) subject specialist(s).
Responsibilities of presenters
• All presenters will refrain from changing the content of their session once it has been approved.
• Provide handouts for the anticipated number of attendees.
• No presenter can refuse attendance to any TESOL member.
