This event was hosted by Erik Ekembe, the Researching in the English Classroom PLC mentor, which consisted of presenters from Mexico, Congo, Sierra Leone, India and more. It was Co-chaired by Catherine Motto, CAMELTA National President, and Prof Daniel Nkemleke, of the Higher Teacher Training College Yaounde. The Co-plenary speakers were Brindy Belinga and Ita Ndifon.
Here’s a little bit about what the conference was about:
- “The conference intends to open further spaces for dialogues on ways of bridging the gap between teacher preparation, practice, and professional development in the global South.
- The hope is to come out with projects that use classroom evidence to inform, pre-service training, practice, and professional development in ELT in various contexts on a sustainable basis
- This conference will set another agenda for classroom research”
