Request for Proposals Fall 2022 Virtual Conference
Tuning Up Our Teaching: Jump Starting, Upskilling, and Creating New Skills
The theme of this year’s conference is Tuning Up Our Teaching: Jump Starting, Upskilling, and Creating New Skills. ORTESOL is looking for proposals for presentations and posters on how ESOL professionals have found ways to tune up lessons for ourselves, our colleagues, and our students. As we are either remaining virtual, moving towards hybrid, or transitioning back into the classroom, there are many new skills we are learning in this process. Our theme of Tuning Up Our Teaching: Jump Starting, Upskilling, and Creating New Skills acknowledges the professional and demographic changes happening to Oregon’s ELL community.
What are some tools you use to improve your teaching? How do you jump start old lessons? What research has been beneficial for upskilling current methods? Have you created new teaching skills with your colleagues?
ORTESOL’s goal for this conference is for attendees to leave with specific techniques that can be applied to our classes. We are looking forward to seeing your proposals for presentations and posters! Let’s get tuned up!
