Waikato TESOL Regional Symposium 2016 -
CLESOL Retold

This year’s highly successful CLESOL 2016 hosted more than 420 delegates and 150 individual presentations and workshops over four days. But with 13 parallel sessions, nobody got to see them all!

Good ideas are meant to be shared and good presentations deserve a second audience.

With this in mind, Waikato TESOL now invites and encourages CLESOL presenters (and others with a good idea) to present their talk again, for a new audience, at the Waikato TESOL Regional Symposium.

We aim to keep costs low – just enough to cover morning tea (but you will need to buy your own lunch). This means that the event will be free to Waikato TESOL members, $5 to other TESOLANZ members, and $10 to everyone else.

If you are willing and available to present, please send by 14 October your 150-word abstract to this address: jonathon.ryan@wintec.ac.nz

You are welcome to adjust your title and abstract in any way you choose.

Mark Dawson-Smith and Jono Ryan, Co-convenors
