What are we doing? What are we doing well? Why? What does our good practice have to say to and for theory? And how do we use theory to help us understand and push our practice forward? In a world where our professional lives are so busy, this event will be a space for us to consider these questions together and take away practical suggestions.

The 2023 NATESOL online conference provides the opportunity to share new ideas and excellent practice with colleagues from around the world in a friendly and open atmosphere.
