CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Hawaii TESOL Conference 2018 continues for the annual conference at Hawaii ToKai International College in Kapolei, Oahu continues.

 Participants are encouraged to submit proposals that are related to the conference theme:

Past, Present and Future of TESOL

Our theme of the 2018 conference is "Past, Present and Future of TESOL" which lends itself to discussions about the progression of TESOL through the years (especially in Hawaii). We are particularly interested in where we have been, where we are now, what we know, what we think and what we do not know, with regards to different TESOL topics showing a change or progression over time. 

We are pleased to host Dr. Richard Day as our plenary session speaker. He is currently a professor in the Department of Second Language Studies at UH Manoa and is well-known for his work in extensive reading. His other areas of expertise are in L2 listening and speaking, L2 materials development and L2 teacher development.

There are six ways to actively participate in the Hawai‘i TESOL Conference 2018.

There will be two deadlines

  • International Deadline Dec 20
  • Local Deadline Jan 20 
Send in your Call for Participation soon.

The Professional Development Workshop on Nov. 15th hosted by Paul Rama and his Technology students was excellent. It emanated from the BYUH campus and connected via Polycom  to Maui, Big Island, and KCC.

    Our sister affiliate recently posted this Call for Submissions for the March 2018 TESOL Ukraine Conference.

    This year's conference will be held in Lviv, a beautiful city in Western Ukraine and one of the cultural centers of the country. Should any member of Hawai'i TESOL decide to travel to Ukraine to attend the conference, let Sally La Luzerne-Oi, Hawai'i TESOL/TESOL Ukraine Co-Liaison, know in advance, and she will try to arrange with TESOL Ukraine members for some type of hospitality (e.g. airport pick up, city tour).
