  • 1.  Call for submissions

    Posted 01-06-2021 03:38 PM

    is calling for articles on training programs or education program topics of significance to teacher educators, with a special focus on teacher leadership. We are also looking for TEIS voices from all of our members.


    Articles should be between 800 and 1,500 words and should address program descriptions, course descriptions, best practices, teaching techniques, or any topic of interest to ESOL teacher educators that pertains to teacher training. For our special issue this autumn, the focus of the article should be on teacher leadership.

    TEIS Voices

    TEIS voices are paragraphs of approximately 100 words that introduce a teacher educator's work or program. We are especially looking for submissions that focus on teacher leadership. TEIS voices serve as a networking tool as well as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on a teacher, program, or country we might not otherwise read about.

    Here are additional submission guidelines:

    • Include a title for the article (written in ALL CAPS).
    • Include author's name, affiliation, city, country, and e-mail.
    • Include a 50-word abstract or teaser for the newsletter homepage.
    • Include a 2- to 3-sentence biography of the author.
    • Contain no more than five citations.
    • Format text in MS Word (.doc(x)) or rich text (.rtf).
    • Include author's photo in jpeg format with a head-and-shoulder shot.
    • Write manuscript according to APA style (6th ed.).

    NO idea what TEIS is.  Please always put the long name
    first followed by the abbreviation.  If wanting to interest
    readers, they shouldn't have to go to the Internet to check
    what is meant by TEIS.

    Our call for submissions is for our next issue (Fall 2021) of the TESOL Teacher Education Interest Section newsletter.

    Best wishes,
