It is hard to believe that 2 years have come and gone since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The realms of learning and teaching have undergone major transformations, as traditional territories have shifted and been redrawn. Teachers have embarked on a long and often arduous journey, but one that has shown us many new paths to take, ranging from honing our skills in digital literacy to paving the way for a multitude of classroom formats.
At this year’s conference, we hope to create an environment that fosters opportunities for shared experiences and to discuss practical issues and research findings. Our 2022 conference theme, Navigating the Way, will focus on how TESL practitioners, EAL teachers, and language learners have become explorers and pioneers as we reshape and redefine familiar territories, and forge new paths for teaching.
Let’s navigate our way on this journey together.
