9 ELT Conference

Navigating the ‘new normality’
of the ELT classroom

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the current level of Covid infections, we have had to take the decision to move from a face-to-face session to online presentations for the plenary talks on Saturday 19th February. We will now be offering a single price for the full programme of 25€ for staff from our Preparation Centres and 35€ for non-Preparation Centre staff. Full details and registration below!

We are delighted to announce the programme for our 9th annual ELT Conference to take place from 15 – 19 February 2022.   Recent periods of lockdown and restrictions requiring social distancing have presented many challenges for ELT teachers with a marked increase in online and hybrid teaching.  Teachers have been required to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances whilst avoiding unnecessary disruption to students and courses. Our 9th ELT Conference will offer plenty of practical ideas for teachers looking to navigate the ‘new normality’ of the ELT classroom.  Fittingly, the conference itself will be a hybrid one*, combining a series of weekday webinars with a morning of face-to-face sessions in Barcelona on Saturday 19th February. The Saturday morning will include a coffee break, giving participants a chance to catch up with colleagues and meet teachers and staff from other schools and academies.  The event will promote shared expertise and provide thought-provoking and motivating ideas.  The Saturday sessions will be live streamed for participants in other parts of Spain.
