Although Applied Linguistics and Language teaching are distinct, they are also interrelated with each informing the other in terms of research and pedagogy. Therefore, the theme of the conference “Applied Linguistics and Language teaching: Making connections” provides an opportunity for discussion about how links can be made between the two areas within Australia and internationally.
Join researchers, language professionals, and interested community members in the 2019 biannual combined Applied Linguistics Association of Australia and the Applied Linguistic Association of New Zealand conference to be held at Curtin University in Perth, Australia.

1 December 2018

The landscape of English language teaching is constantly changing and as teachers contemplate new cohorts of learners, they face this question: Is business as usual enough? In today’s settings there are new technologies to incorporate into learning and teaching, different teaching spaces becoming available, a need to balance fostering learner autonomy with the pastoral care of students, as well as ensuring that our teaching is relevant to the world our students face. We would like to adopt a collegial approach to this question and so invite abstracts from members and non-members of ALANZ and in particular from new and emerging researchers.
