    This year's theme: New Routes in ELT: From Inspiring to Empowering invites us to reflect on the ways in which our profession has been developing. For years we have been aiming at enabling our students to learn and communicate in English and recently at expanding their creativity as well. Now it is time to move forward and provide them with the means to manage and control their own learning experience and develop their own identity and personal strengths in order to achieve their goals. This new perspective not only empowers students to construct their own learning experience but also empowers the teacher to become a partner in the students' learning. This makes the teaching and learning experience more challenging, flexible and rewarding. 

    We welcome presentations which deal with creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, communication and cooperation, ICT literacy, bilingual education, as well as those which are of wide general interest for language teachers working in different sectors and with students of all ages. The proposal deadline is 31 October 31 2014.

    Convention Objectives

    Teachers are the mediators, the conductors of their classrooms, the people whose work makes a child evolve by learning itself, the outside world and accumulates knowledge which leads to experience. The 36th Annual TESOL Convention will feature presenters from all over the world who will address all issues relating to how we can take teaching to new heights, the ever-evolving role of the teacher and the difficulties our profession comprises. They will offer both theoretical and practical knowledge on how to reach the sky as far as teaching is concerned, emphasizing on the role of the teacher who is indispensable in the learning process.
