ReSIG: MA ELT TESOL Dissertation Quick Fire Presentation Online Event

Are you studying an MA in ELT / TEFL / TESL or TESOL in the UK?

Are you wondering what difference this will make to your future?

Would you like to meet up with other MA students from other universities, network and share your experiences?

The IATEFL Research SIG are holding their annual MA ELT / TESOL Dissertation Quick Fire event online this year. All MA English Language Teaching / TESOL students are invited to join in with this informal event to present their dissertation ideas and work so far to fellow students in the field. This is a great opportunity to interact with your peers from different universities in the UK as well as practise valuable presentation skills, while getting useful feedback that can help you finalise your discussion and conclusion chapters.

Even if you do not wish to present, still come along  and join in as this event will be an excellent chance to hear how other students tackled their dissertations and to network. 


There will be 12 presentation slots available for this event. Further details about submitting your proposal for one of these slots will be available soon. All accepted presenters will receive a certificate.
