The Global Citizen and New Technologies
BC TEAL is excited to partner with TESOL International Association to offer a pre-conference symposium on May 3, 2018.
TESOL symposia are one-day, regional programs developed in collaboration with one of the association’s worldwide affiliates. They provide you with an opportunity to talk face to face with leading experts in the field on one key topic selected by the affiliate.
With the world-wide web growing daily, TESOL professionals are faced with a desire to create not only only English language users, but global citizens as well. With an increasingly mobile population, cultural awareness is more important than ever! Participants attending this one-day symposium will be exposed to ways technology can simultaneously teach English and build the global citizens necessary for the changing 21st century. In addition, this event will galvanize current technology skillset to help participants empower their English language learners to think beyond the classroom.

Through interaction with leading international experts, you will engage in peer-to-peer networking and knowledge-sharing. This symposium will provide you with practical, research-based ideas, strategies, and tools to help you improve your ELT work. Themes include:
- Creating global citizens
- Women in technology
- Teaching tech that hasn’t been realized yet
- Overcoming the “I don’t do tech” mindset
Registration is $95.00 (CAD) for members and non-members.
