Pre- and Postconvention Institutes (PCIs)

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 many more!
PCIs take place Tuesday, 24 March; Wednesday, 25 March; and Saturday, 28 March. Space is limited, so register early—and take advantage of early registration prices.
