In 2019, World Teachers’ Day will celebrate teachers with the theme, “Young Teachers: The future of the Profession.” The day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, to take stock of achievements, and to address some of the issues central for attracting and keeping the brightest minds and young talents in the profession.

The British Council and IATEFL web conference will provide teachers and teacher educators young and old with an opportunity to celebrate their work, develop their skills and share ideas with colleagues around the world by attending presentations by experts on an extensive range of key issues in the teaching profession, all without the restrictive financial and damaging environmental costs of travelling to a face-to-face event.

The web conference is free and will feature four 1-hour plenaries and twelve 45-minute presentations, each one looking at an important aspect of teaching, teacher education and the teaching profession.

Further details with links to attend the presentations will be sent by email to participants who register via Eventbrite 48 hours before the event. Direct links to attend the sessions will be available on TeachingEnglish and the web conference website 48 hours prior to the event.
