Conference
& Workshop
Theme:

EXPLORING THE NEW
WAVE IN KOREAN TEACHING AND LEARNING

 

Korean popular culture is attracting
a great deal of youths’ attention around the globe, from Asia to the Middle East
to Europe to Americas. The heightened visibility of Korean culture brings new
legions of learners to Korean classes, expanding the already diverse bodies of
students with varying expectations, needs and goals. Korean educators need to
assess the momentum of the rekindled Korean Wave, its potentials and
implications for Korean teaching. Ways to harness the wave as an opportunity for
buttressing communication, culture, connections, comparisons and communities in
Korean curricula and programs should be explored. In this vein, studies of
related fields and disciplines beyond the domains of languages and linguistics
are desirable to address relevant issues such as global flows of culture,
transnationalism, and notions of national identity, tradition and modernity.  

 

With the theme “Exploring the New
Wave in Korean Teaching and Learning,” the 17th annual AATK meeting
invites proposals for discussion of how to augment and strengthen integration of
language and culture in Korean teaching and learning.  A focus can be on popular
culture or other cultural processes and products, student orientations,
interests and learning styles, or instructor backgrounds, trainings and
resources.  We also welcome proposals and abstracts with other focuses in the
area of Korean teaching and learning as well.

 

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

There are three categories of
presentations: Workshop panel (90 minutes), Teaching materials exchange (20
minutes), and Conference paper (20 minutes). The requirements and expectations
of the three are as follows. 

 

(1)
Workshop Panel (90 min. June 29-June 30):  Workshop panels address
practical concerns and share immediately applicable suggestions on issues
ranging from development of program, materials and resources to instructional
activities and techniques to methods of assessment. The proposal should include
a description of the topic and materials, the rationale, and step-by-step plan
for interactive involvement of participants. 

 

(2)
Teaching Materials Exchange (20 min. June 29-June 30): Presentation of
original, innovative and well-tested teaching materials or activities. The
proposal should include a succinct description of the goal, the material and its
effects. 

 

(3)
Conference Paper (20 min + 10 min Q & A. June 30-July 1):
Presentation of research on topics pertaining to teaching and learning of
Korean. The abstract should include clearly stated research motives and
objectives, description of data and analysis, and discussion of implications for
teaching and future research. Mere description of instructional materials or
practices without analysis of data will NOT be considered in this category. On
the other hand, we expect explicit statement of the relevance of presented
research to Korean program development and pedagogic practices.
