Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) academic is uniquely placed at the interface of theory informed practice and practice informed theory. For the last 8 years we have linked academic research to applied linguistics students, teachers, teacher educators, decision-makers, supporting organisations and other researchers through free at source YouTube talks. More about our work is available in this short 2015 interview with The British Council teach English team at IATEFL.
Our Keynotes are delivered by global leaders in the field. We also provide a forum for authors to talk about how their published peer reviewed research, or an aspect of it, impacts on language education. In addition we support, free of charge, early career researchers in the data gathering stages of their work via our extensive online networks.
Our social media outreach is second to none and these channels allow for discussion of TESOL-based issues together with broader educational debates. Why not get into digital media for continuing professional development by working through our task sheet?
Our outreach also provides an unrivalled channel for our services. We can: help add participant numbers and the global impact to your conference; promote a publication and other products; recruit staff that you need. Try us - we do it differently! We are not a commercial company and our primary remit is knowledge building - that's why were so popular! Our income generation activities help support these free resources. Why not be a part of it? Back us and we'll back you - it's a win win.
We're better connected and the more connected we are the better it gets!
Our talks are classified into three areas as follows:
Keynotes: cutting-edge leaders in the field talk about their work. Our 2008-2010 collection include talks from J. Jenkins, M. Cortazzi, P. Nation, D. Little, A. Tsui, D. Nunan, A. Burns and K. Johnson. Our Keynotes (11-13) include talks from A. Pennycook, V. Cook, R.Phillipson, T. Lynch, T. Rodgers, A. Holliday, M. McCarthy and N. Spada.
Our Keynotes (14-16) section is occupied by four of the most influential scholars in our field Professors S. Krashen, R. Ellis, D. Larsen-Freeman and J. Swales.
Research-papers: authors talk about an article which they have had published in a leading TESOL-based academic journal - over 40 talks to choose from!
