The Maryland TESOL (MDTESOL) Annual Conference is our capstone event. Our goal is to provide a dynamic forum for ESL professionals and interested parties to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing our students, teachers and schools. From the exploration of best practices to research based innovations in the field, the possibilities for professional development are endless.
The conference is an excellent opportunity to meet with practitioners, researchers, publishers, material writers, policy makers, and other key members in the ESOL profession. In addition to presentations, the Maryland TESOL Annual Conference offers a great opportunity for networking in order to create and sustain interactive communities of practice. Publishers and other educational vendors exhibit the latest textbooks, materials and educational resources to help ESL professionals better meet the needs of students. The Maryland TESOL Interest Sections (IS) also afford additional opportunities for in-depth discussion related to specific populations, such as Adult Education, Elementary, Secondary, Higher Ed, to name a few (Please see the Interest Section page for further information).
We strongly encourage presentation proposals from professionals at all stages of their careers, from graduate student to seasoned professional. The conference environment is supportive and welcomes broad participation from all ESL professionals.
Attend, present, network, and learn!
