The ACTA International Conference is entitled ‘English Language Learning in a Mobile World’ and has an array of outstanding presenters, including some from the NT. The major theme of the conference is exploring the role of the TESOL teacher in a digital environment as well as reviewing policy, curriculum and assessment in EAL/D. Participants will get an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing educators outside of their cultural context and revising the work we do in our sectors.
