In June 2017, Semesta Learning Evolution had been successful in sending their representative to take part in the international forum.
Indiana Ayu Alwasilah, the Editorial Manager of Semesta Learning Evolution, had her paper entitled “Sundanese Local Culture Integration in English for Young Learners’ Classroom” published in Asia TEFL e-Proceedings. The paper was submitted to meet the challenge of getting paper published in Scopus-indexed journal or proceeding. Thus, the customers of Semesta Learning Evolution do not need to cast any doubt when trusting their paper to be translated or proofread by Semesta Learning Evolution, since the paper will be managed by someone who had her paper published in Scopus-indexed journal.
Indiana participated in the 15th Asia TEFL entitled “ELT in Asia and Digital-Era: Global Citizenship and Identity” on July 13th-15th, 2017 in Yogyakarta.
This event was held jointly with the 64th TEFLIN International Conference and was co-hosted by Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, TEFLIN, and Asia TEFL to pull together the number of current and critical issues for TEFL researchers, policy makers, and practitioners. The interest towards this event was so high, so the event was held in two venues to accommodate the participants that were very large in number.
Indiana’s paper investigated the implementation of Sundanese local content integration in English for Young Learners (EYL) Classroom and was conducted in an EYL course in Bandung. A case-study design was employed to see that the technique could be utilized as a proposed strategy to promote cultural literacy skills and to address difficulties in providing culturally appropriate English materials for students in West Java. This paper was presented in the parallel sessions on the first day of the conference.
As the presenter, Indiana had a chance to publish this paper.
The paper submissions were available in four options: (1) Asia TEFL e-Proceeding, (2) TEFLIN e-Proceeding, (3) Thematic Book, and (4) TEFLIN Journal. Indiana chose the Asia TEFL e-Proceedings since it was the most prestigious and the most challenging of all options. Her paper was reviewed and revised twice. In this reviewing phase, the unqualified papers were offered to be published on the Unedited Volume. Fortunately, Indiana’s paper was good to go and was published in Asia TEFL e-Proceedings 2017, and published by Routledge: Taylor and Francis Group.
