2017 KOTESOL International Conference


in association with the
Pan Asian Consortium of
Language Teaching Societies

invites you to participate in


The 25th Annual Korea TESOL
International Conference

"Why Are We Here? Analogue Learning in a Digital Era"

21-22 October 2017
Sookmyung Women's University, Seoul, South Korea

Our theme is “Why Are We Here?  Analogue Learning in a Digital Era." In an age of user-controlled virtual-learning environments, why do people leave the comfort of their home to go to a large venue with hundreds of people they don’t know? So, will you be here? Why? This is your opportunity to tell us. The goal is to have an open discussion about the value of face-to-face events for teachers, academic institutions, and the ELT industry. Join us, have your say, share, collaborate.

Check the links on the right for conference details, and don’t forget to come back often as this information will be updated regularly.

Thank you for your interest in the 2017 International Conference.
