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.
This year’s BC TEAL Interior Regional Conference in Nelson, BC was a wonderful success and this was largely due to the top rate organizing and effort put in by our Regional Rep Tyler Ballam and his team at Selkirk College. We were fortunate to have plenary speaker Dr. Scott Douglas give such a well-received keynote at the conference. The workshops and the Pecha Kucha presentations were also very well received. This conference was a model event and we will use some of the ideas from it for future conferences. Thank you again Tyler and your great team!
