Grad Forum - 700 x 169

Forum for Graduate Students at the TESOL Convention

The TESOL 2023 Graduate Student Forum allows emerging English language professionals to share their research results, teaching experiences, and to network with other graduate students and faculty members.

TESOL offers two graduate student conferences the day before the annual TESOL International Convention & English Language Expo: the Master's Student Forum and the Doctoral Research Forum. These forums enable students to

  • Share their research results, teaching ideas and experiences, and teaching materials.
  • Meet and network with graduate students and faculty from other universities.
  • Participate in the TESOL convention without having to compete with experienced professionals for time on the convention program.
  • Gain experience organizing a conference, adjudicating proposals, and other professional activities.

Important Notes: You must be presently enrolled as a Master's student to present at the Master's Student Forum or have graduated within the last 6 months. If you are a Doctoral student, you must submit to the Doctoral Research Forum. Applicants may submit more one than proposal so long as the topics are completely different. Master's students submitting a proposal may not be a reviewer. You must choose whether to be a reviewer or a proposal submitter as it is considered a conflict of interest.
