The aim: Teachers are the core of education and we need to admit that our profession comes with a great deal of responsibility, primarily towards our students and then to all others involved in the educational process. We often find ourselves feeling tired, stressed, and overwhelmed with administrative tasks. That is why we need professional development events such as this one to rejuvenate our teaching practices by learning about current ELT trends, challenges that teachers from different countries face and how they overcome them, discussing issues close to our hearts.

 

Participants: English Lanaguage teachers and professionals in the field of ELT at all levels from Macedonia and abroad.
