Behavioral Sciences and Language Studies

2021 International Multidisciplinary Conference on Productivity & Sustainability

This conference track raises the sub-theme of Trends and Approaches in Behavioral Sciences and Language Education and Studies (TABLES). The issues include the study of learning and teaching and other research and practices to understand human behavior, attitudes, beliefs, and interactions. It recognizes the importance of developing talents and skills for the advancement of health-related behavioral and social sciences. The sub-themes addressed include but are not limited to behavioral assessment and intervention perceived as vital to education and behavior analysis (Rispoli & Machalicek 2020). The scholarship and research on language education, multiliteracies, and technology-enhanced education are also conference interests. The conversation centers on the development of the use of digital tools, multi-mode texts, knowledge practices, and multiliteracies that have been used in HE (Yuen, 2015).

Who should participate?

This track welcomes presentations and attendance of researchers, scientists, scholars, educators, administrators, consultants, policymakers, and professionals in social, behavioral sciences, and language studies.
