The theme of our conference, “Technology Through the Ages,” will engage ESL professionals at every level by focusing on innovative strategies for teaching and administrating language learners, as well as encouraging cooperation and collaboration among ourselves as educators. Highlighting our conference theme is a group of workshop presenters who will make Sunday a “must-go day”: Keith Folse, Kate Kinsella, Susan Gaer with Blair Roy, and Christine Freak.
