Technology Improvement Project

"it was obvious TESOL's technology was hurting our member experience and limiting our growth. I am excited to deliver a better experience to our members!"

Creating a Better TESOL
During the Pandemic and the shift online it became apparent our technology was preventing TESOL from meeting the needs of the field and we couldn't continue to use manual workarounds to accomplish simple tasks. Following a comprehensive technology audit, the Board committed to making it a priority and authorized a comprehensive 3-year plan to improve our systems, software, hardware and training. 

In undertaking this project the following principles will guide our work:

Improve the member experience and remove barriers to participation.

Align our technology to our strategic goals and values.

Envision TESOL's future state. 

Members will start to see improvements in the first half of 2022 and continued improvements over the next two years. The final year of the project will focus on building the systems and processes to ensure TESOL's technology continues to support the evolving organization and field of English language education worldwide.
