In this post we look back over IATEFL and some of our highlights and then take a look forward at what to expect from the up-coming Innovate ELT conference in Barcelona on the 6th and 7th May.
With over 30 speakers lined up, we figured you might want some tips on navigating the programme for the Innovate ELT conference, which takes place on the 8th and 9th May in Barcelona. Here are 13 ways to figure out what to see.
ELT conferences are great. They’re an opportunity to learn, to network, to make new friends. They’re also a chance to enjoy a few nights out where it’s acceptable that ELT is the only thing on the conversational menu! But having attended a couple of conferences already this year, with IATEFL on the way, and with my memories of past years still fresh, I increasingly feel that the ELT conference scene could benefit from a bit of a shakeup. On May 8–9th this year, ELTjam and Oxford TEFL Barcelona are hoping to do just that with our Innovate ELT Conference.
Here are a few of the things about ELT conferences that we felt were due an update and how we’ve decided to address those things for our event in Barcelona.
