Boğaziçi University School of Foreign Languages is organizing a conference designed to address the theme of “bridging the gap between Secondary Education and Higher Education.” We are interested in hearing about research studies and effective practices that can help bridge the gaps that may exist not only for learners, but also for teachers, professional development specialists, syllabus and materials designers, test writers, policy makers, and administrators at university academic bridge programs. THE (Towards Higher Education) Conference welcomes the presentations of English Language Teaching professionals and researchers from all over the world.

Important Announcement about the Registration Fee

Dear Colleagues,

When we started organizing our Towards Higher Education Conference, we aimed to create a platform where EL instructors from all over the world could share and learn. However, universities in Turkey have been going through difficult times, especially after the latest budget cuts. Due to the high volume of emails we have received in the past two weeks regarding the regulations which limit universities' financial support for conference participation, we have decided to reduce our registration fee for non-presenting participants working in Turkey. From today onwards, in order to make this event accessible to everyone, non-presenting participant registration fee is going to be 150TL (on-site 200 TL). To register for the event, please go to: http://www.theconference.boun.edu.tr/registration.php
