“Diwaniyah” Legacies and Beyond: Envisioning the Future of TESOL, Sitting with the Elders

Presenter Information

N/A

Description

The Diwaniyah concept was adopted for use as a medium to deliver a panel discussion in lieu of having a keynote speaker for our Sandanona Conference. The gist of it is to enjoy good company, comfortable seating, good coffee or tea, and food.

This configuration represents a place of key social interaction. Historically it was a Bedouin tent, with pillows or cushions on the floor for seating. For today’s session, it is a room with four walls where social and relational discourse will take place. All who gather in the room are encouraged to facilitate an open flow of wholesome communication. The Diwaniyah is a place where relationships are expanded in a reciprocal connection to each other.

The SMAT29 class welcomes our elders, families, the SIT and World Learning communities. We invite you to share our experiences in a triad of teaching, learning in different contexts, the validity of our legacy, and its future.
