"Haptenings" at the TESOL 2017 Convention in Seattle!
If you'll be in Seattle in March for the 2017 TESOL Convention, please join us at one of the "haptenings" (haptic pronunciation teaching happenings):
  • Haptic Pronunciation Teaching (workshop) (Kielstra, et al.) - Basics of the method. No prior training in phonetics or pronunciation teaching necessary. 
  • Teacher cognition about haptic pronunciation teaching (colloquium) (Acton, et al.) - Reports on 5 recent studies of haptic pronunciation teaching in the classroom
  • Rhythm and focal stress (poster session) (Teaman, et al.) - Haptic and other techniques for teaching rhythm and focal (sentence and discourse level) stress
A few other convention asides:
  • As usual, we'll also set up some kind of networking session in the "networking" area late in the convention. 
  • We will also video those sessions and make them available on once we get home.  
  • I'll be tweeting (@WmActon) as will other hapticians, I'm sure. 
  • v4.5 of the Haptic Pronunciation Course will be out by then, with revised videos and coursebook additions.
  • I'm also on a panel on research in L2 homework in which at least some of my data comes from haptic homework as well. 
Keep in touch! (So will we!)
