Registration is now open for “Building an Inclusive, Sustainable Research Community in TESOL,” a research symposium presented by TESOL International Association and The International Research Foundation for English Language Education (TIRF). The symposium will take place 2–3 June 2017 at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California.

This symposium brings together experienced and novice researchers, ELT practitioners, and administrators to examine the relationships between selecting a topic, developing research questions, and identifying proper methodologies. By attending the symposium, participants will be able to network with other TESOL researchers and practitioners to discuss current and future research projects. They can also learn about TIRF’s Research Priorities and TESOL’s Research Agenda
