The U.S. Mission in Pakistan welcomed over 700 English language professionals and university students to the OPEN English Language Expo 2022, a three-day conference held at Greenwich University Karachi.
The Expo’s theme was “Emerging Technologies in English Language Education”. English language teachers and students from Sindh and Balochistan provinces attended and participated in workshops, presentations, and dialogues focusing on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education, gamification, online learning management systems, offline and online assessment platforms, and other computer and mobile-assisted learning tools as an essential part of converting English language classrooms into global classrooms.
Jacqueline Deley, Deputy Counselor for Public Affairs at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, while marking the opening ceremony, said, “This conference is an extraordinary opportunity for Pakistani English language teachers to gain knowledge about the latest trends and innovations in the field of English language teaching and learning. One of the most fundamental aspects of our long friendship are the people-to-people ties that exist between our two countries, and our collaboration in the fields of education and English form the backbone of those people-to-people relations.” Ms. Delay added.
