About the Conference

The International Virtual Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Education Research and Language Teaching (ICERLT 2021) provides a platform for researchers, practitioners, representatives of non-profit and government organisations, students and educators comprehensively from the fields of Engineering, Technology, Science, Social Sciences, Management, Arts and Humanities to share and discuss the most recent innovations, trends and concerns as well as the challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the field of education. It also provides an opportunity to bring out the new techniques in teaching and assessment and expected to pave a path for innovative curriculum and teaching-learning methods.

Objectives of the Conference

ICERLT 2021 aims to provide solutions to the prevailing problems in the teaching-learning process, inclusive of E-learning in the pandemic era, from the perspective of both the teachers and the students.
