IATEFL BESIG is proud to announce it will be hosting its first ever online symposium on Saturday, 18 June 2016.
This event continues BESIG's pioneering efforts in organising IATEFL's first online conference in 2013, and ensures that there will be an exciting mid-year event in lieu of the sometimes summer symposium (held most recently together with IATEFL Hungary in Budapest last year).
The theme of the 2016 symposium is "Business English in the Era of Global English".
The IATEFL BESIG commitee and online team sees web-based events such as this symposium as central to fulfilling its mission to provide high-quality professional development opportunities to business English trainers around the world. The event will be scheduled to accommodate as wide a geographical area as possible during waking hours. The sessions will also be recorded and made available to active IATEFL BESIG members.
The online symposium will consist of 6 x 7 minute Pecha Kucha-style presentations, 3 x 45 min webinars/online workshops, and a "Question Time" panel discussion. Prospective speakers are welcome to submit a Pecha Kucha and a webinar/online workshop.
More details will be published soon.
