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. We’re opening a Call for Proposals for short talks soon. More information is here.
