Four faculty members of the Cebu Technological University Main Campus presented their papers during the 2nd Asian EFL Journal’s International Conference on Research and Publication at the Site Skills Training Campus in Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga on November 8 – 10, 2019.
The theme of the conference is “The Role of Research Writing and Publication in Language Education.”
Presenters from CTU Main Campus were from the CAS Language, Literature and Communication Department, Dr. Alma Valendez, coordinator of English Language Studies; Dr. Sunliegh Gador and Dr. Rowanne Marie Maxilom. Dr. Cristie Ann Jaca from the College of Education is also one of the presenters.
The keynote speakers were Dr. Custodio Martins, Dr. Robert Dickey, and Dr. John Adamson who gave input on language teaching, second language and action research approaches, and publishing papers.
This conference provides capacity building to the presenters on how they can publish their research papers in Scopus-Indexed journals of the ELE Publishing. According to Dr. Dickey during the micro-colloquium, “Many journals are proud of their rejection rate. Few journals are nurturing writers.”
ELE Publishing, Site Skills Training Campus and Angeles University Foundation that organized this conference provided opportunities to the researchers to improve their manuscripts through presentations. Hence, publishing one’s research is also sharing and the journal should be nurturing. –ccmr/rmmm
