Presentation Guidelines:
How can Neuroscience, Psychology, and English Language Teaching (ELT) inform each other for the benefit of students and teachers? This question is at the core of our FAB conferences. Our understanding of the brain is making advances every day, and yet, few of these advances have yet made an impact on language teaching. We intend to change that. We hope that by providing conferences like this, we can share what we have learned. We encourage teachers to teach themselves about advances in neuroscience, integrate these findings into their understanding of teaching, and teach the rest of us through presentations or conversations at the conference.

Presentation assistance offer:

Making an effective presentation is never easy, even for experts. Therefore, some of the more experienced presenters are offering help to anyone who would like it, the same way they sometimes help each other. It can be advice on how to craft your presentation, advice on a live presentation given over Skype, or feedback for changes afterwards.
