TESOL/AL Roundtable

The TESOL/AL Roundtable is a student-run organization designed to allow students to present research in an informal environment, share knowledge of upcoming events, and engage in dialogue with other TESOL/AL enthusiasts, whether they be part of the Teachers College community or from outside institutions. In order for growth of both student linguistic knowledge and community to occur, we strongly encourage the presence and participation of TESOL/AL professors. It is our hope that the TESOL/AL Roundtable may serve to strengthen the sense of community within our disciplines by drawing on the diverse knowledge and talent of our university, our city, and the world at large.

To stay up-to-date on events during the academic year, please join our Facebook Group.
