2012 International TESOL Convention (Day 4)

Pennsylvania Convention Center 1101 Arch Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
United States

As the largest organization focused exclusively on English language teaching for speakers of other languages, TESOL annually hosts more than 6,500 people from across the United States and around the world at the international convention. The annual, four-day convention (March 28 through March 31), offers English language teaching professionals from around the globe the premier opportunity for professional development in the field. Participants have the opportunity to exchange ideas and practices, keep abreast of current trends, foster their professional networks, receive mentoring on research projects, review the latest books and professional resources, and learn about advocacy efforts in their communities and around the world.

The 2012 convention’s theme is “A TESOL Declaration of Excellence.” The convention offers TESOLers the opportunity to declare their vision of excellence in all aspects of the profession. While TESOL, as an organization, has come a long way in the last 46 years, it is vital for TESOLers to come together to discuss and share issues of concern about, and ambitions for, the field of English language teaching. This year, participants are invited to reflect on their practices, voice their opinions, and declare their pursuit of excellence in the English language teaching profession.
