Call for Participation

The 45th Annual TESOL Greece

Annual International Convention

"Beyond Language: Towards Global Mindset Development"

9-10 March, 2024

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to submit a proposal for the 45th TESOL Greece Annual International Convention on March 9-10, 2024. Our theme for the convention is “Beyond Language: Towards Global Mindset Development”. What is Global Mindset Development? How do you develop a global mindset? Do you consider yourself globally minded? Do you feel that you can tolerate ambiguity and complexity? Could you find strategies to adjust and flex your style?

In the convention, we will  get insight into all of these questions, and four amazing plenary speakers will share their perspectives and expertise: Ofelia Garcia, Alexandra Popovski, Rachael Paling, Michael Robbs.

As always, the focus of this important annual convention is to offer a weekend of high-quality professional development through presentations and workshops — both those related to the convention theme and those related to our ongoing needs as ELT professionals. 

We would like to invite you to participate actively in the convention by giving a presentation, a workshop, or a multimedia demonstration/workshop. To submit a proposal, please fill in the call for participation form below by November 10th, 2023.


Important information

  • Please note also that a professional presentation should not be used to advance a book, publisher, author, course or examination. TESOL Greece Members are particularly sensitive to the distinction between commercial and professional presentations.
  • The proposals go through a blind review process where they are evaluated for their:
    • relevance to the convention theme
    • relevance to ELT professionals in general or to specific practitioner needs (e.g. young learners, adult learners, use of technology, public school teachers, private school teachers, Higher Ed, etc.)
    • clarity, coherence, and cohesion of message 
  • NB: Unlike many associations, TESOL Greece does not charge a separate convention fee. All presenters who are not currently members of TESOL Greece are required to become members to be able to present at the convention. This low, one-time fee of euro50 s includes access to all events for one calendar year and to the quarterly TESOL Greece Journal publication. 

Types of proposals

Workshop (45 minutes)

  • A Practice-Oriented presentation, which shows rather than tells. 
  • There is an expectation of audience participation.
  • The presenter helps participants solve a problem or develop a specific technique through a series of structured hands-on activities. 

Talk (45 minutes)

  • A formal instructive talk given by (a) subject specialist(s).
  • Typically has a brief time for Q & A at the end

Please note: All presenters must refrain from changing the content of their session once it has been approved.

For more information you can visit the 45th Convention page.

We look forward to your submissions!

The TESOL Greece Board of Directors, 2023 – 2024
