RICELT (Red de Investigador@s Chilen@s en ELT) would like to invite teachers, researchers, academics, undergraduate and postgraduate students in Chile and abroad to present their work and proposals for the 2nd RICELT Biannual Conference titled:
“Working together towards an informed Chilean ELT classroom”

The objectives of this event are:
  • Value the importance of Chilean research done in ELT to inform local classroom practices.
  • Offer concrete connections between theory and teaching practices.
  • Give members from different educational backgrounds the opportunity to network, share, and disseminate Chilean ELT research.

Each speaker and attendant will have the opportunity to be part of thematic sessions covering different areas of interest. Besides there will be talks by Chilean teachers / researchers with experience in the Chilean context, as well as discussion panels on specific topics. Additionally, in order to facilitate participation there will be an area for poster exhibition.

It is expected that the participants will benefit from the meeting by sharing their work and obtain helpful feedback to keep on working in our field. Presentations will be conducted in English.

Important dates:
*Call for papers:   31 January to 14 April 2017.
*Deadline for abstracts submissions: 14 April 2017.
*Results: First half of May 2017

A working definition of research:

RICELT understand research as:
“The careful study of a situation/facts through the collection/generation of evidence and its analysis”.

Terms and conditions of abstract revision

  1. Submissions which exceed required word count (in title and/or abstract) will not be accepted for revision.
  2. Presentations based on opinions, experiences and/or practices (which are not informed by the collection/generation of evidence) will not be accepted for revision.
  3. Do not mention your institution or yourself in the abstract in order to ensure the blind review process (see point 4 below)
  4. RICELT uses a blind peer review process for abstract selection. A blind peer review involves a revision committee composed by peers who review and evaluate the abstracts following the criteria that have been publicly shared with all RICELT members. The  names of authors and their institutions are hidden from reviewers and names of reviewers are hidden from authors, therefore the decision is purely based on the known criteria.

Please consider the following points when writing your abstract:

  • Provide a title that captures the main concern, focus or topic of the presentation.
  • Within the abstract (250 words), briefly explain the problem and the objectives that gave origin to the presentation, research methods, the main findings (if applicable) and conclusions, and relevance of the presentation for responding to the 2nd RICELT Biannual Conference’s objectives. Please do not mention your name or your institution and/or where the research took place to ensure the blind review process.
  • Include four key words which describe the main themes of the abstract.
  • Include a 100 word biodata with relevant information about the speaker(s), such as profession, area of interest, research interests, institution.

Submissions should be done only through the submission form designed by RICELT. This form should be submitted by 14th April 2017. Any queries or comments should be sent to  redicelt@gmail.com

The evaluation rubric can be accessed here

Submissions which do not fulfill the requirements presented above or sent after the deadline (14th April 2017) will not be processed or accepted as part of the 2nd Biannual Conference programme.
