ELTAM Conference 2016

Last month (October 14-16, 2016), the English Department took part in the 9th biannual IATEFL-TESOL International Conference, organized by the English Language Teachers' Association of Macedonian (ELTAM), which NOVA has been a part of for the last two years. The conference proved to be an excellent professional development opportunity inspiring attending members and presenters to constantly adapt and adjust to emerging educational trends and new generations of learners. The two days were packed with plenary sessions and workshops, confirming the conference's motto - re-imagining teaching and rejuvenating and transforming classroom practices - as a visionary choice. NOVA English Faculty member Bela Gligorova presented part of her research titled "Conceptualizing (the) language of 'the Post-Other': The Balkan(s) and English as a medium", focusing on the role of international education in localized context, particularly when working with TCKs. http://www.eltam.org.mk/tabs/view/159deb21fd22027a0aff3c98eb261098
