Broaden Your Experience at TESOL 2017
Some education sessions at TESOL enable you to discuss critical issues in smaller, more intimate gatherings or to dive deeper into more complex topics. Others allow you to use the time before and after the convention to augment what you learn during the usual academic sessions.
These sessions sometimes require separate registration or a ticket. For more information, see the convention registration form (available 15 September) and the session's webpage.
If you have any questions about TESOL education programs, please contact TESOL Professional Learning.

Important New Session Immediately Following the Wednesday Keynote!
Actions and Advocacy in a 2.0 World
We live in a world where governments increasingly pander to unfounded fears of immigrants, refugees, and even students who are “speakers of other languages.” As educators of speakers of other languages and as teachers who are speakers of other languages, we bear a responsibility to speak up and act out. In this session, TESOL professionals from across the world will share stories and pose challenges for what it means to be active advocates in a 2.0 world.
