    This year's theme: New Routes in ELT: From Inspiring to Empowering invites us to reflect on the ways in which our profession has been developing. For years we have been aiming at enabling our students to learn and communicate in English and recently at expanding their creativity as well. Now it is time to move forward and provide them with the means to manage and control their own learning experience and develop their own identity and personal strengths in order to achieve their goals. This new perspective not only empowers students to construct their own learning experience but also empowers the teacher to become a partner in the students' learning. This makes the teaching and learning experience more challenging, flexible and rewarding. 

     The proposal deadline was 31 October 31 2014.
