Pre- and Postconvention Institutes

Practical Workshops for English Language Teaching Professionals

Pre- and Postconvention Institutes (PCIs) offer in-depth, hands-on professional development at the TESOL convention. Selected by the Professional Development Committee, these workshops are designed and led by experts in the field. The topics address the professional development needs that convention planners and past PCI participants have identified. Topics this year include content-based instruction, computer-assisted language learning, pronunciation, writing, materials development, and much more.

PCIs take place Tuesday, 25 March; Wednesday, 26 March; and Saturday, 29 March.  Space is limited, so register early—and take advantage of early registration prices. Half-day PCIs are US$125 for TESOL members and US$155 for nonmembers; full-day PCIs are US$175 for TESOL members and US$205 for nonmembers. All PCIs include handouts.

Prices after 3 February: Half-day, TESOL Member US$155, Nonmember US$185; full-day, TESOL Member US$205, Nonmember US$235

You do not have to register for the convention to participate, but you must register for each PCI you plan to attend.
