75 min (15 min ea / 30 min Q&A) Students (especially pre-dissertation students) are encouraged to create panels of 3 to discuss different perspectives on the following complicated issues in SLA. Possible panels include: high tech/low tech/no tech, Native/Non-native Teachers, Language Standards/World Englishes, Teaching grammar/Teaching culture, functionalism/ structuralism, top-down/bottom-up strategies, Whole Language/Phonics. These are only examples, if you can build a panel around another topic, feel free! Panel speakers should establish a brief theoretical framework before beginning discussions about real-life scenarios. Panel speakers do not need to directly respond to each other, but should illustrate a particular point of view on the issue. Q&A may lead to future research brainstorming.
