The Image Conference
Organised by APPI
Friday 13th and Saturday 14th October
An exciting and innovative event for ELT professionals
Putting media and images at the centre of the language learning agenda.
The Image Conference is an innovative and collaborative project which seeks to explore the possibilities which film, video, images and video games offer to both language teachers and language learners. The rationale behind The Image Conference is that today we are saturated with visual stimulation and that the visual image has taken over. In the twenty-first century, the ability to interpret, analyse and create images is an integral part of literacy. The aim of The Image Conference is to put images at the centre of the language learning agenda and offer guidance on using images critically and creatively in language teaching in the age of the Internet. The Image Conference brings together leading experts and practitioners in the use of images in language learning who share their experiences, insights and know-how and provides participants with an excellent opportunity to enhance their competence in the innovative and creative use of images
