BESIG: What, if anything, does it mean to be authentic?
An IATEFL BESIG webinar presented by Ian McMaster and Steve Flinders

But what exactly is authenticity and is it always positive? In this talk, we will discuss various dimensions of authenticity in relation to both language training and leadership.
