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.
