ELT professionals who wish their teaching to be informed by current research in the field may be faced with a challenge: finding relevant publications which are both accessible and of practical application in their own specific teaching contexts. This two-day event was conceived to reduce the divide between research into the teaching and learning of English and everyday classroom practice.

This conference will bring together curious teachers, researchers and practitioner-researchers to promote a spirit of enquiry and mutually beneficial collaboration. We hope to achieve a common aim: demystifying research and encouraging teachers to read, engage with, and participate in relevant studies with clear practical grounding in order to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

To this end the conference offers opportunities to share classroom-based research, both through workshops and talks of interest to practising teachers.

The ELTRIA conference is organised by the EIM: Escola d’Idiomes Moderns (School of Modern Languages) of the University of Barcelona and will take place on 26-27th April, 2019.

This event is an ideal opportunity to experience the beautiful city of Barcelona in the spring. Arrive a little early to combine the conference with the Catalan festival of Sant Jordi ‘The day of the book and the rose’ that takes place on the 23rd April.
