YLTSIG: Emerald Web Conference 2021

Join the IATEFL YLTSIG for their Emerald Anniversary Web Conference with the theme: Beyond an industry: professionalising global TEYL practices.

2021 marks IATEFL YLTSIG’s emerald anniversary and throughout our 35-year history, we have striven for TEYL to be taken seriously as an ELT specialism through our events, publications and community-building initiatives. At the centre, there has been the aim for TEYL to be recognised as a profession - underpinned by research, best international practices and quality teaching standards. Therefore, this Emerald Anniversary Web Conference hopes to represent TEYL’s coming-of-age and to celebrate our many successes.

The stimulating three-day event will feature 35 sessions including keynotes, plenaries, inspires, talks, quizzes and our sponsor’s showcase. The outstanding global speaker line-up includes Joan Kang Shin, Daniel Xerri, Carol Read, Bruno Andrade, Vinicius Nobre, Gail Ellis and YLTSIG’s very own, David Valente.

The conference sessions will be organised in six strands:

  • Strand 1: Innovative classroom practices
  • Strand 2: Professional development
  • Strand 3: Global skills
  • Strand 4: Diversity and inclusion
  • Strand 5: Practitioners’ working conditions
  • Strand 6: Language learners’ rights and child protection

To discover the sessions and the speakers, please visit the Web Conference page on the IATEFL YLTSIG website. You can download a PDF of the programme here.

Registration is free for IATEFL YLTSIG members and non-members alike.
