Welcome to our 2023 webconference: we hope you will join us to start the year on a positive note with our welcoming and optimistic theme, Better Together.
IATEFL and YLTSIG have the global mission of linking, developing, and supporting teachers worldwide, and so we were inspired this year to focus on the themes of communication, collaboration and cooperation in various ways. To that end, the conference will have three themes:
Better Together in the Classroom
Better Together in the Staffroom
Better Together with the World
In Strand 1, Better Together in the Classroom, we offer a series of talks focusing on practical classroom ideas to help our learners communicate, collaborate and cooperate.
In Strand 2, Better Together in the Staffroom, the focus shifts to CPD and the talks will revolve around supporting teachers to make professional connections and develop their skills collaboratively.
In Strand 3, Better Together with the World, the talks will look at connecting our Young Learner classrooms with the outside world in a variety of creative and inspiring ways.
To go along with these talks, there will also be a selection of short ‘Inspire’ presentations on interesting and varied topics, some fun social interactive events, and also three fascinating 6-hour minicourses that, as always, are completely free of charge to SIG members.
