About this event

Background:

For the past 37 years, the National Conference for Teachers of English Costa Rica (NCTE) has been a forum for the promotion of innovative practices in the field of English language teaching among educators in both the public and private sectors of the country along with participants and speakers from around the world. The goal of this annual event is to provide a space in which working professionals from many different teaching contexts can come together, share their experiences, creativity, and knowhow in order to contribute to the growth and advancement of English language education for all interested parties in the country and region.

Over the past two years, the unprecedented conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have led us to hold our event in a virtual format. For 2022, we are aiming to learn from our experiences and offer a hybrid format to take advantage of the social benefits of face to face interaction and at the same time continue to impact our teaching community around the world through online sessions.

Virtual webinar style workshops will be combined with in-person plenary sessions live streamed from the Eugene O’Neill Theater in San José, Costa Rica. These plenaries will have online moderation which will allow remote participants to interact with each other and pose questions for the speakers. The face to face portions of the event will follow all the recommended safety protocols and will be subject to modifications based on the changing health conditions.

This uncertainty that we continue to live with is what has inspired the theme of our 2022 conference as we develop new strategies to make the most of the novel challenges and opportunities we face.

2022 Conference Theme:

The global disruption of recent years has led to unpredictable conditions for teachers and students in which change has been the only constant. In these dynamic times a growth mindset, an eye for innovation, and a spirit of empathy and resilience are what will carry us through to the yet to be established paradigm of post-COVID English language teaching.

The NCTE Online 2022 conference, with its theme “Reimagining ELT: The Innovation Journey to Empower Teachers and Learners in Times of Constant Change” will focus on the lessons we have learned during this great shift and the event will serve as a forum to propose ideas for a more reflexive approach to language pedagogy, one that promotes flexibility, adaptability, autonomy, innovation, and empowerment for teachers and learners.

Thank you for joining us!
