Promoting good practice in the use of technology in EFL instruction
We do this through face-to-face presentations, workshops and mini conferences that are typically affiliated with TESOL Chapter events but more and more of our work is being done and shared online via online conferences, discussion threads, curated links, and social media tools. We also aim to showcase innovative approaches to realizing EFL learning objectives that have been facilitated through the use of information technology.
Your involvement is always welcomed and encouraged! Interested in knowing how ICT may be harnessed to increase your effectiveness? Become involved in a community.
