Welcome to BC TEAL. We hope this website provides a central meeting place and on-line community for EAL professionals throughout BC. Our goal is to advance the profession of teaching English as an additional language by facilitating professional development for all of our members.
Tuesday, December 2nd
4:00-6:00pm (followed by a social)
Kamloops Immigrant Services - 448 Tranquille Road
The afternoon will begin with a fun-filled, action-packed hour of warm-up activities from a number of presenters. You are sure to take away a couple of new ideas for energizing your class during the cold winter months.
The second hour will focus on “things that get us heated” with a panel presentation and discussion about the state of ESL in our area and province. The panel will include Chris Buchner, Coordinator of ESL at Kamloops Immigrant Services, Jason Brown, 1st VP of the Federation of Post-Secondary Employees (FPSE)/ESL instructor at TRU, and Joe Dobson, 1st VP of BC TEAL and Chair of the Advocacy Committee/ESL Instructor at TRU.
Please join us across the street at Red Beard Coffeehouse for some food and drink and to continue the conversations!
This event is free for BC TEAL Members and students.
