Check out our keynotes!

We are Sofia Elgueta and Denise Lo, this year’s ATESL Conference Managers. We are so excited to announce this year’s conference theme:

Horizontal with Star on white

We think this year’s theme will resonate with anyone who has been involved in teaching English in the last year. While surviving a pandemic, we’ve transitioned our teaching online and kept our students engaged, giving them the language tools they need to communicate in their specific settings.

Light represents ideas, knowledge, technological development and hope in a future of increased face-to-face interactions. We think our experiences and growth will illuminate the future of our teaching. Also, as a result of teaching online, we’ve found new ways to engage, assess, include and support our students. New technologies and the ingenuity we had to develop raised the bar, and the expectations are now greater than ever.

We would like for this year’s conference to offer the perfect space to share:

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements about our lineup of keynote speakers, registration information and the call for presentations!

We look forward to having you join this year’s ATESL Conference and sharing the light!
