TESOL Launches New One-Day Advocacy Workshops

by David Cutler | 08/15/2017
TESOL International Association has launched a new one-day advocacy workshop to be held on 27 October and repeated on 4 November 2017 in Alexandria, VA. In these intensive workshops, TESOL professionals at all levels will receive valuable advocacy skills training. For one full-day, TESOL advocates will develop their capacity to advocate for English learners and other educators, while exploring advanced advocacy tips, tools, and exercises to help improve individual and group advocacy efforts. After this informative workshop, participants will return to their teaching and learning context ready to implement their new skills and strengthen advocacy initiatives.

To allow for a personal and hands-on experience, attendance will be capped at 25 participants for each workshop. Register early to reserve your space.
