    Hello everyone!

    I am Aysegul Albe Ozdemir and I have been working as an English Instructor at Eskisehir Osmangazi University for 12 years. I became a member of Tesol when I attended TESOL International Conference in New Orleans 10 years ago and after a long break, here I come again to this community.

    I work in Continuous Professional Development unit in my department. I am also a member of TESOL Turkey community and I have hosted Tesol Turkey conferences in our University twice with my colleagues.

    It is a great opportunity to be in the same community with all other instructors who aim to pursue learning more about the new trends and contributing to the academic life.

    Hope to share and learn more.

    Dear all
    I am very much pleased to be associated with TESOL International Association. I have been working as an ELT Teacher Educator / Teacher Trainer for more than 20 years. I got opportunity of attending a ToT for the three weeks in March this year. And after the training, I was supposed to join TESOL Convention 2020 in Denver. However, both the programs were postponed due to Covid 19 pandemic. In fact, I joined TESOL Virtual convention 2020 and learned a lot. Hope to join TESOL Convention 2021.

    I believe in continuous professional development. I want to learn from you all.

    Best

    Hello Rifka:

    I am excited to see so many teachers join us recently from South Eastern University!  Earlier this year, I was involved (virtually) in the BA TESL curriculum revision project at South Eastern University in my role as an English Language Specialist.  I am sure that you will learn so much from your colleagues in TESOL International that you can take back to your classes and program.

    Hello Aysegul:

    Welcome back to TESOL International!  Our annual conference is an important event, but there are extensive opportunities to connect with each other and learn throughout the year!  Can you tell us more about the Continuous Professional Development unit in your department?  Is this like teacher training or ESP?

    It sounds like you have some great experience with TESOL Turkey!  I hope you can get involved with our Conferences Professional Council in the future to help plan upcoming TESOL conferences.
