All Together Now

Focusing on our shared goals in the increasingly diverse and varied world of ELT

Our industry has always prided itself on being diverse and inclusive. With teachers, trainers and students based all over the world, we have been influenced by a wide variety of ideas and perspectives. In recent years, this trend has only accelerated. The online format is increasingly popular while at the same time we have continued to innovate our in-person teaching and training. We mustn't forget, however, that our shared goals remain unchanged: improving learner outcomes and increasing the accessibility of ELT worldwide.

Our new, flexible format offers online and in-person elements that you can mix and match however suits. We feel that this reflects this year's conference theme - we aim to bring together the best of what both have to offer. If you're ready to explore ideas from some of TEFL's foremost experts and want to network with professionals from all over the world, get your ticket now. We very much look forward to having our InnovateELT community together again!

 

InnovateELT was set up in 2015 with the aim of discussing the role of innovation in language education and celebrating some of the most exciting things happening around us. In 2020, Oxford TEFL brought you the online version of the conference, and by popular demand we were back with the same format last year. This time we are bringing together the best of both worlds, and our seventh edition will take place both on Zoom and in Barcelona.
