2014 UECA CAMTESOL RESEARCH MENTORING AND CO-AUTHORING PROGRAM
This exciting project helps develop regional teacher researchers in the ASEAN communities.
Expressions of Interest are now open for up to seven Research Mentors and up to four Co-Authors for the UECA CAMTESOL 2014 Research Mentoring Program. This is an exciting opportunity for English language teachers engaged in research to work closely with Regional Teacher Researchers from ASEAN countries.
There are two ways you can participate in this project. Please specify in your letter of application which option you prefer.
A. You can mentor a regional teacher researcher
(see Appendix A for a list of regional participants and their research areas)
B. You can collaborate with a regional teacher/researcher on their research
(see Appendix B. You may work with more than one participant. Please nominate in your application who you wish to work with.)
There is no payment for participating in this project. However, there is a prize for the most promising research. You will be required to submit a report on the progress of the project at a group symposium at the 9th University of Sydney TESOL Research Network Colloquium, held in Sydney on 23 August 2014.
If you co-author research with a regional researcher your work will be considered for publication by Language Education in Asia (LEiA), an online peer-reviewed publication that is inspired by the CamTESOL conference.
A winner for the most promising research will be chosen from the group of Australian Research Mentors and Co-Authors and announced at the 9th University of Sydney TESOL Research Network Colloquium, held in Sydney on 23 August 2014. The winner will receive airfare, accommodation, conference fees and per diem to attend the 2015 CamTESOL Conference held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 21-22 February 2015.
Please send a letter of application for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your resume by 13 June 2014.
