Conference Theme:

Active Learning

We will be sharing techniques and ideas about how to use active learning in the classroom. There will be presentations, as well as our open forum which will give teachers a chance to share their own experiences with active learning. This will offer a more relaxed approach to the conference, and provide opportunities for everyone to engage with the topic.


We welcome everyone interested in language learning.The conference will be a great way to share ideas and network with like minded teachers in the local areas.

We will have 3 speakers presenting at this event.
More information will be given as we move closer to the event.
There will also be some complimentary snacks and drinks provided.
