Interest sections (ISs) are TESOL’s special interest groups. ISs offer members a supportive community of practice where they can share insights or solicit guidance on the professional issues that arise every day. As a TESOL member, you will join one primary IS, but you may join as many ISs as you like based on your areas of professional interest. (You may vote in elections for your primary IS.)
TESOL has 21 ISs. Each one has an email discussion list, a discussion area, and a library in the TESOL Community
. Some ISs also maintain their own websites. With TESOL’s support, many ISs publish regular e-newsletters that feature content written by IS members. (When you join an IS, you can decide which content you would like to receive.) And all ISs referee content for the Annual TESOL International Convention & English Language Expo.
For information on individual ISs, please see the list below.
