2020 State Conference

CATESOL 2020 State Conference

In an effort to meet the needs of educators in a meaningful and accessible way, the CATESOL 2020 State Conference will be virtual, live, and synchronous. 

We hope that you will consider attending as we are working hard to put together a well-rounded program of live-streamed keynotes and concurrent sessions; asynchronous teaching tips and poster sessions;  virtual exhibit booths; and live, interactive Q&A and social networking.
