    Welcome Feruza!
    It's so good to have participation from Kazakhstan -  a country I have grown very fond of through many visits over the last few years. Since you are at the university level, perhaps you could let us know what topics you teach - perhaps English language? Or training future English teachers?
    At any rate you will find plenty of material on the TESOL resources site.  And also do engage with the Interest Sections and Professional Learning Networks.  There are lots of opportunities to join webinars or discussions.

    Hello, Richard!  Nice to meet you!  I am very thankful TESOL  international association for providing a big opportunity to communicate with educators from all over the world.   Yessenov university is a multidisciplinary higher education institute.  Our university trains future engineers, IT specialists, oil and gas specialists,  marine,   teachers,   railway specialists, and many others.   Currently, I work in the English philology department.  We train future English trainers.  So my main aim to be a part of the TESOL community is to find resources and educators for discussion and sharing ideas about  English teaching methodology.

    Hello Feruza, welcome to TESOL. I am glad to see your introduction. I worked with teachers in Abkhazia, through my consultancy projects with United Nations. I also worked with teachers in Yakutia through my Yakut TESOL and Tex TESOL connections. I look forward to seeing your expertise in our discussion forum.
