BELTA Day 2022

Dear BELTA friends,

We are absolutely delighted to announce BELTA Day 2022!

On 30 April 2022, we will all meet again in Brussels for a live edition of our annual conference.

In the past two years many of us had to adapt to completely new ways of teaching and interacting with students and colleagues. Professional development was not a choice but a must and we all realised how important it is to keep up to date in our field, and learn continuously from experts, colleagues and students.

For this edition of BELTA Day, we focus on BELTA's primary mission, i.e. to encourage the professional development of English language teachers.
The 2022 theme 'Inspiring Collaboration' indicates how inspiring it can be when teachers collaborate and share their experience and best practices. At the same time we hope that this edition of BELTA Day can inspire attendees to collaborate even more with their peers when they return to their schools.

We are thrilled to have Silvana Richardson (UK) as our plenary speaker.
She will focus on professional development in her plenary: Collaborative approaches to learn and innovate together.

Silvana: "I would like to focus on this topic because as well as being my main area of specialism, I strongly believe that after two relentless years of the most challenging conditions for educators, and as we begin to slowly emerge from the pandemic, it's vital to consider how to continue to support teachers and their learning in the aftermath. Teachers are exhausted, need to regroup and to find new sources of inspiration and mutual support."

We will meet again at Erasmushogeschool, Campus Bloemenhof, Brussels for a day full of inspiring sessions, and networking.
The publishers and other ELT related companies and organisations will be present as always in the exhibition hall.
