Proposals will be accepted for a minimum of $75,000 and a maximum of $100,000 to partner with RELO Pakistan to convene an “International English Language Teacher Education Forum” that will include presentations, workshops, and symposia on best practices in English Language Teaching (ELT)
and the professional development of Pakistani English language teachers and researchers.
The Forum will gather alumni from RELO programs and Pakistani English language teaching professionals across Pakistan from a cross-section of instructional and institutional levels to initiate and sustain meaningful professional dialogues.
The Forum will also be a platform for the RELO to work with members of existing organizations (and/or parties interested in forming new associations) to reflect on the current status of professional English language teachers’ associations in Pakistan.
RELO Islamabad has a vested interest in an active and healthy professional teachers’ organization in Pakistan.
Teachers’ associations can be important partners to identify need for programming, can act as conveners to facilitate programs that address needs, and can greatly extend the reach of RELO programs through a country-wide network.
The applicant may administer sub-grants for regional conferences and assist in supporting the promotion of viable new and/or existing professional English teachers’ associations in Pakistan.
