Leadership in TESOL: Finding our True North
As English continues its trajectory of becoming the prevailing language of business, science, diplomacy, and education worldwide, it is increasingly important for TESOL professionals to sharpen their leadership skills and exercise leadership to ensure that English Language Learners actually benefit academically, socially and culturally from this global trend. In her presentation, TESOL International Association executive director, Rosa Aronson, will discuss three aspects of leadership that will keep us focused on our true North.
