PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

This session is designed to establish a vibrant and supportive community of English teachers, aimed at fostering professional growth, collaboration and ideas. This is a community of learners who, through participation in the session, can connect, share resources, discuss pedagogical approaches and support each other in their professional development. Educators are encouraged to form connections, engage in meaningful discussions, and share success stories, challenges and best practices to further promote a sense of camaraderie and professional collaboration. Our goal is to enrich the professional lives of educators and also have a positive impact on the quality of English language education.
