Why Didn’t I Get Involved Sooner?
I’m a big fan of Korea TESOL. One of my only regrets from my time in Korea is that I didn’t get involved in their organization sooner! I met lots of people who were passionate about teaching, which definitely inspired me to bigger and better things in the classroom. Some of my favourite memories were from the conferences, especially the national and international ones. Lots of famous people, both around the world and within the Korean EFL context. And although I’m certainly not famous, I did have the honour of presenting at a few of them, which was enjoyable, in an extremely nerve wracking kind of day!
It’s because of my own very positive experience with Korea TESOL that I want to give their conference a bit of a shout-out on my blog. Here are all the details that you need to know.
What is It?
The Korea TESOL (KOTESOL) International Conference hosted by Sookmyung Women’s University is a two-day conference for English teachers. The goal of the conference is to support KOTESOL’s mission to “assist teachers in self-development and improve ELT in Korea.”
The KOTESOL International Conferences features more than 200 sessions. The sessions are an eclectic mix of academic lectures, practical workshops, and discussions, hosted by ELT experts, educators, and scholars. Attendees can focus on sessions for teachers of young learners, university students, or adults. In addition, there are also 101 workshops designed to offer guidance to new teachers or experienced teachers who would like to brush up on the fundamentals. Between presentations, there is great opportunity for networking, as the conference attracts about a thousand teachers from Korea and across Asia.
