    For six weeks, participants and ESOL experts can engage in collaborative, online discussion sessions or hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions will bring together participants for a longer period of time than is permitted by the four-day convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise possible. The sessions are free and open to all interested parties. You do not need to be a TESOL member to participate.
