2019 ORTESOL Fall Conference Call for Proposals: Reflect and Renew

Email address *
Deadline for proposals: Monday, August 26th, 2019
In recognition of the fact that a teacher’s job is never done, the ORTESOL board invites you to submit a proposal for a 50-minute session aligned with our 2019 Fall Conference theme of Reflect and Renew at Clackamas Community College's Harmony Campus on November 15th and 16th, 2019.

This year’s theme highlights the need for active practitioners to “sharpen the saw” ! Ask any teacher in Oregon about the challenges they experience in relation to their jobs as English language educators and most would agree that building a sustainable career, managing time, working with limited resources, and our strained and uncertain political climate can lead to a deep sense of burnout. Please join us in working to create a healthier community of practice!
