Beyond an industry:
professionalising global TEYL practices

2021 marks IATEFL YLTSIG’S EMERALD ANNIVERSARY and throughout our 35-year history, we have striven for TEYL to be taken seriously as an ELT specialism through our events, publications and community-building initiatives. At the centre, there has been the aim for TEYL to be recognised as a profession – underpinned by research, best international practices and quality teaching standards. Therefore, this emerald anniversary web conference hopes to represent TEYL’s coming-of-age and to celebrate our many successes.

The stimulating 3-day event will feature 35 sessions including keynotes, plenaries, inspires, talks, quizzes and our sponsor’s showcase. The conference sessions will be organised in six strands:

Strand 1: Innovative classroom practices
Strand 2: Professional development
Strand 3: Global skills
Strand 4: Diversity and inclusion
Strand 5: Practitioners’ working conditions
Strand 6: Language learners’ rights and child protection

This Emerald Anniversary Web Conference is free of charge for the TEYL global community thanks to
