These are the proceedings of the Sri Lankan English Language Teacher Educator Conference (SLELTEC) which was held on 5 and 6 March 2020 in MAS Athena in Thulhiriya, Sri Lanka. This was ten days before the whole country went into lockdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Sri Lankan English Language Teacher Educator conference grew out of our work with teacher educators, both pre and in -service, in the state sector in Sri Lanka. This work is part of our larger programme TRANSFORM.
The overall theme was English language teacher education in the 21st Century.
Papers, workshops and poster presentations were delivered on the four sub-themes:
- The speaking and listening challenge
- Empowering teachers to teach literature
- Digital trends
- Observation and feedback methods and techniques
The video of the launch event can be found below, followed by the papers that were published and presented under each sub-theme of the conference, as well as the poster presentations displayed at the 2-day conference.
