ATESL 2016 Conference — Inspiring through Inclusion & Communication
ATESL 2016 Conference

Join us at the Fantasyland Hotel in Edmonton from October 14th to 15th for an exciting lineup of keynote speakers and invited workshop presenters from across Canada and beyond.

We are delighted to welcome two internationally renowned keynote speakers: Dr. Jonathan Newton from Victoria University of Wellington and Dr. Stuart Webb from the University of Western Ontario. ATESL is also very pleased to invite four TESL leaders to present workshops during the conference, including Dr. Scott Douglas (University of British Columbia, Okanagan), Dr. Jeremie Seror (University of Ottawa), Dr. William Dunn (University of Alberta), and Emily Albertsen (Bow Valley College). For more information about each of the keynote and invited speakers, see the Keynote and Invited Speakers page.

This is a wonderful opportunity for ATESL members to experience professional development opportunities often limited to those who can travel to national and international conferences.

ATESL is thrilled with the number of great presentations lined up for the two day conference.
