Meeting Description:

The research group Grup d’Investigació en Ensenyament de Llengües (GIEL) is pleased to announce the 4th International Conference on Teaching Grammar (Congram23), to take place at the University of Valencia (Spain) from 25-27 January 2023.
The challenges of multilingual education demanded by contemporary society need to respond to the need of citizens to use languages (own and foreign) for progressively more complex uses. These entail the development of thought; mastery of diverse linguistic procedures; and the acquisition of the skills and strategies necessary to develop multilingual competence. To respond to this social need, a thoughtful use of languages must be promoted. This requires a grammatical knowledge that can be used consciously and autonomously by students as well as methodological procedures that permit teachers to address this knowledge in the classroom. This is the challenge we intend to address in this conference through a principal albeit not exclusionary approach: to debate the teaching of grammar from an interlinguistic perspective from multiple perspectives (teachers, students, content, legal provisions, teaching methodology, curriculum and family languages, teaching material etc.). Also, as in previous years, the Conference will host events on grammar teaching around these same matters – in first, second and foreign languages – both from a synchronic and diachronic perspective.

Conference Themes
- The interlinguistic perspective in grammar teaching
- Teaching grammar and linguistic usage
- Grammar reflection in language teaching
- Teaching grammar and linguistic theories
- Historical aspects of teaching grammar
- New directions in grammar teaching.

Confirmed speakers for this year include Jim Cummins (University of Toronto), Joaquim Dolz (Université de Genève), Pierre Swiggers (K.U. Leuven) and Pilar García-Mayo (Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea).

Call for Papers:

We invite all researchers with an interest in the subject, who are willing to contribute to the debate on the questions that grammar instruction poses, to participate in the conference.

Guidelines for submitting proposals for symposiums, papers and posters
Oral presentations: Proposals should present research results or reflections on specific aspects of the conference’s thematic strands. Each participant may submit a maximum of two papers or a paper and a poster. In the case of proposals with more than one author, all authors must register for the conference. The stipulated time for each paper is 20 minutes.

Posters: Posters will have an eminently practical character (teaching experiences, projects for the teaching of grammar, development of didactic activities, etc.). There will be a poster session on the 25th and another on the 26th, during which the authors will explain their work.

Symposia: These sessions will gather presentations of research groups or researchers with similar interests around aspects related to the teaching of grammar. Each symposium will have a person in charge, who will coordinate with the organizers of the conference. The symposium will have a maximum duration of 120 minutes and up to four speakers, from at least three different universities. Each of them will have a maximum of 20 minutes for the presentation of their work.

Proposals must be submitted through this form:

The deadline to submit proposals is May 1, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.

The selection of all proposals for paper, seminars and posters will be subject to peer-review.

Both communications and posters must be presented by one of the signatories. Presentations by people other than the named authors will not be allowed.

Papers will be accepted in Spanish, Catalan, Galician, English, French and Portuguese
