26th MELTA In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence

In en­cour­ag­ing greater crit­i­cal as­sess­ment of global trends in English lan­guage ed­u­ca­tion and how these trends trans­late into prac­tice in lo­cal set­tings, this year’s MELTA In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence is themed “New Di­rec­tions in English Lan­guage Ed­u­ca­tion: Global Trends and Lo­cal In­no­va­tions”. Par­tic­i­pants and pre­sen­ters are given the op­por­tu­nity to share their ideas and knowl­edge through paper pre­sen­ta­tions, work­shops and poster ses­sions. In ad­di­tion, MELTA also of­fers teach­ers the op­tion of pre­sent­ing in the Cre­ative Teacher Show­case cat­e­gory, a unique pre­sen­ta­tion op­tion dur­ing which teach­ers get to show­case teach­ing in­no­va­tions or teach­ing sim­u­la­tions of ef­fec­tive meth­ods and prac­tices.

Safety on Streets (SOS) Chal­lenge

In part­ner­ship with the Malaysian Global In­no­va­tion Camp; Cre­ativ­ity Cen­tre (MaGIC), the Road Safety Depart­ment Malaysia (JKJR), and Malaysian Dig­i­tal Econ­omy Cor­po­ra­tion (MDEC), the Tune Pro­tect SOS Chal­lenge takes a stand for im­proved safety for all road users — in­clud­ing pedes­tri­ans. The Chal­lenge is open to ter­tiary level stu­dents of all back­grounds, call­ing for unique con­cepts of road safety ap­pli­ca­tions that res­onate with the younger gen­er­a­tion, with the in­ten­tion to de­velop the idea into ap­pli­ca­tions in the fu­ture. Par­tic­i­pat­ing teams must be able to ar­tic­u­late how their ideas would: el­e­vate aware­ness of road safety is­sues or cul­ti­vate be­havioural changes; stand out among ex­ist­ing of­fer­ings; and be user-friendly.
