We would like to invite you and your members to participate in the 30th AKS Conference which will take place at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in 2018, and we would be very grateful if you could forward the attached Call for papers to your members.
Classic – Modern – Digital: Foreign Language Learning and Teaching at Universities between Tradition und Modernism
From 1 - 3 March 2018 the 30th AKS conference of Arbeitskreis der Sprachenzentren, Sprachlehrinstitute und Fremdspracheninstitute e.V. (AKS) will take place at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
The AKS acts as a communication platform for most of the institutions that deal with learning and teaching languages in the higher education sector in Germany and some other European countries and cooperates with CercleS, the European Association of Language Centres.
The conference motto will be reflected in a number of lectures and workshops with the following topics:
The conference also includes an exhibition of a number of publishing companies and providers of language-related services. In addition, there will be ample opportunities to explore the city of Weimar (European Cultural Capital in 1999) and the Bauhaus-Universität with its famous UNESCO world heritage sites.
We would like to invite you to present samples of your work and research results in the form of lectures, work-in-progress presentations, workshops, or poster presentations. They should bear a clear reference to foreign language teaching and learning at institutions of higher education and also include practical examples for implementation or use.
Options for your presentation
· Lecture in one of the workshops (25 min lecture + 10 min discussion)
· Workshop (90 min)
· Poster presentation
Submission of abstracts by 1 October 2017 only online at www.uni-weimar.de/aks-2018
Best wishes from Weimar,
Dr. Susanne Kirchmeyer
