ATESL 2017 Conference — Expanding Possibilities: Diversity and Innovation

The ATESL 2017 Conference is taking place on October 20th and 21st at The Westin Hotel located in beautiful downtown Calgary, Alberta. The conference theme is Expanding Possibilities: Diversity and Innovation. The theme is intended to capture the creativity and responsiveness English language professionals demonstrate on a regular basis, particularly in light of emerging opportunities and challenges.

We are excited to announce Dr. Bonny Norton (University of British Columbia), Dr. Darren Lund (University of Calgary), and Dr. Greg Kessler (Ohio University) are the keynote speakers!
