Thank you for attending SUTLF 2023! If you wouldn't mind, please fill out this survey at your earliest convenience.
Reflections & Reconfigurations
Taking Reflections and Reconfigurations as a theme, the 7th SUTLF conference will explore what teaching and learning means in 2023. It's a chance to examine what we have learned – about education, about our students, and about ourselves – from teaching, studying, and living through a pandemic. It's also a chance to contemplate the changes we can expect as classrooms and campuses fill with students and restrictions begin to lift.
Happily, we are once again able to hold SUTLF in-person at the Sojo International Learning Center in Kumamoto. However, in line with our theme of reconfigurations we are embracing a spirit of hybridity: the conference will offer opportunities for both in-person and online presentations, as well as dual purpose rooms in which live speakers can be streamed to online attendees. The rules we are all used to at this point for COVID prevention will apply for those attending in-person. Should changes to these conference plans occur due to any unforeseen emergencies, we will be sure to alert both attendees and presenters and accommodate those changes accordingly.
We invite researchers, educators, and learners to share their knowledge and visions for the future of English language teaching. We hope you will join us on Saturday, February 18th to reflect on your experiences and help to reconfigure teaching for 2023 and beyond.
Hope to see you in February!
