For five weeks in January-February, participants and ESOL experts can engage in collaborative, online discussion 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 land-based convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise possible.
Sessions are free and open to anyone around the globe.
