TEC News was Korea TESOL's online companion publication to The English Connection (TEC). It was a quarterly publication for several years (2011-13). TEC News contained news about KOTESOL's Chapters and Special Interest Groups (SIGs). It also carried news on ELT conferences, calendars of events for KOTESOL and ELT conferences in Korea and international. Also included was a handy, yet extensive, KOTESOL Directory of National and Chapter officers and other position-holders in KOTESOL. (Publication has been discontinued.)
The KOTESOL Handbook was published in 1999 through the collective efforts of a team of authors and editors. Only a few hardcopies were printed at the time. However, a digital version of the Handbook is now available online.
Many KOTESOL Chapters create their own local periodicals. These are linked from the Chapter homepages. A current listing of chapter newsletter homepages is available.
