TEIS Webinar: TESOL Professionals' Motivations for Growth and Leadership

When:  Jul 15, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET)


In this session, Beatrix Price will talk about the results of an interview study that was part of her Ph.D. dissertation on the professional development of successful ELT professionals, through their career as teachers, teacher trainers or leaders in ELTAs, to identify their motivation for professional growth and leadership positions within their associations. Drawing the results from the dataset, it can be confirmed that the most abundant motivational components were connected to skills gained through voluntary work. Participants will be invited to share their own experiences.


Beatrix Price is a lecturer at ELTE University, Budapest, where she teaches ELT Methodology and other teaching-related courses to future EFL teachers and is the program coordinator of the English Language Instruction MA program. Her current doctoral dissertation explores how English language teachers’ associations support their members’ continuing professional development.
