CALL FOR PROPOSALS - CoTESOL Fall Convention 2022 - November 11th and 12th -  Reconnecting: The Power of Collaboration

CoTESOL invites English language educators from all over Colorado and beyond to submit proposals to present at the 2022 Fall Convention. This year, we will continue to focus on sharing promising practices, research, and insights from our wonderful Colorado ESL professional colleagues. Your proposal will be considered for the convention scheduled on November 11th and 12th.

CoTESOL will accept workshops, discussions, panels, demonstrations, and teaching tips across all levels of instruction, administration, and research. We want to hear about the smallest wins and the biggest Colorado wins that have supported our local ELA communities in K-12, adult education, community colleges, 4-year institutions, community programs, and beyond!

CoTESOL conventions regularly attract hundreds of attendees from all levels of ESL (i.e., K-12, adult ed, intensive English programs, higher ed, workplace ed, literacy, etc.). In addition to Colorado, many attendees come from neighboring states and around the country. CoTESOL conventions are an ideal place for first-time presenters because of the welcoming atmosphere and hospitable environment.

Please Note: This form is for submitting a proposal to present only. All presenters must register for the event on a separate form, which will be posted on the cotesol website in September. Please check the CoTESOL website for further information, as it becomes available:
