The Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) continues to push for the advancement of globalized educational opportunities for its students. English language educators in Japan remain charged with the task of supporting learners as they strive to acquire a global language. This February, we invite you to share your research, strategies, materials, theories, tools, and ideas that deal with this issue at SUTLF 2017.

Presentations, posters, and workshops that address the following topics are welcome:
1. Educational approaches, strategies, and materials that encourage active student involvement in globalized learning contexts
2. Reports and reflections on the impact of globalization on teaching, learning, and administrating EFL in Japan
3. Programs and tools for preparing and supporting ELLs for and through participation in globalized contexts and communities

This year, we will also be inviting former study-abroad and exchange program participants to share their experiences during a featured poster presentation session.

Important Dates:
Call for Presentations: 25 December
Early Registration: 15 January
