Webinars/Professional Development

 I have created this page for webinars or seminars for the web. If anyone has ideas, resources, or special training they would like to share with other educators for professional development.

Would you like to attend a conference but don't have the funds? It is a hassle getting time off work, and making travel arrangements to attend these events. The TESOL International Association can help.
There are many travel grants and scholarships available to those who qualify. Click on the link for more details. 

Even if you can't attend, many of these conferences have live streaming video of selected speakers and workshops.

I recently participated in the Thailand TESOL conference on January 29th-31st 2015.
The conference was entitled "English Language Education in Asia: Reflections and Directions" Please have a look at the materials I have gathered here. This is just a sample
of the materials that are available. If you would like to view certain items in greater detail
please visit T. Darryl in IEP room 26, or I can email materials to you or place them in your folder on the department server.

This is the conference handbook it has important information
such as Biographies and contact information of presenters as well as valuable resource information for language educators. 

Here is the conference program of events. It is a complete listing of presenters.
