After the successful We Still Plan conferences of 2018, 2020 and 2021, we are meeting again this year to exchange stories related to teaching. Both practising and student teachers are invited to take part - we notice different things at different stages in our careers and a lot can be learnt from exchanging varying perspectives. The conference has been supported through the years by the Faculty of Philology Blaze Koneski, UKIM.
Call for talks
This year the topic of the conference is intersections between the personal and the professional. What happens in our personal lives can't help but influence our professional identities, especially with the pandemic as an overarching context for change. We are seeking contributions which explore our professional identity development from that personal standpoint. Some prompts to guide reflection are (though not limited to): Have I changed personally in a way I am comfortable to talk about? What impact has that change had on my professional life? How do I feel about it? (How) Can my reading on the topic help to understand and manage that change? How do I continue developing as a professional? In the interest of time, contributions need to be short and to the point (10 minutes, with a 5-minute Q&A session).
Talk proposals (50-100 words) and the rest of the speakers’ details to be added to
by 1st June 2022. Participation is free of charge. Certificates for participation to follow. Format of event to be decided on additionally - if conditions in place, hybrid format possible (face-to-face and online). If in doubt about any of the above, get in touch with Elena Oncevska Ager at
