Education is about pushing the boundaries

A changing global dynamic requires new insights, understandings and innovation which challenge TESOL researchers, policy makers and practitioners to rethink and redefine.

This conference explores the ways in which we can challenge boundaries in pedagogy, research, structures and systems to enhance the capacity of diverse learners to participate fully in a global society.
