Every couple of months, we hold an online community meetup. Anyone can participate live, ask us questions, and give your thoughts on the topic at hand. 😬 🤠 😭 🤵 🙆‍♂️ .

Our #tdsiglive will be coming to you straight from the breaks at our TDSIG Showcase Day at IATEFL Conference in Room 11b. We are showcasing several 5-minute pop-up talks on a wide variety of topics. These are informal, but they’ll be livestreamed and recorded and posted through our FB and Twitter accounts throughout the week. However, if you want to see one live, come join us during the three breaks of the day in Room 11b!

Are you a social justice warrior? Should we be as global and inclusive teachers in ELT? What is our role and how do global issues like immigration, discrimination, and equality impact our identity and development?

We’re joining up with GISIG (Global Issues SIG) for our IATEFL Pre-Conference event next year and we’d LOVE to see you there to share your ideas with our community on these very current pedagogical questions. Our talks and speakers have been announced! More information is here.
