InnovateELT 2019

17-18th May, Barcelona

Back to the Future

InnovateELT is five years old. To celebrate our half-decade, we want to invite our wonderful community of ELT professionals to stop the clock and take stock of where ELT is going.

At IELT19 we will look back at the past 5 years of our industry and reflect on what we’ve learnt as a profession. What myths have been debunked? What are the key developments that have impacted how we work? How are we wiser?

We will then look ahead at what’s in store for us over the next 5 years. What breakthroughs in other industries are likely to impact ELT? How is learning and teaching going to change? What skills do we need to develop in order to thrive? What can we as a community do to actively create the future we want?

At iELT19, we want you to actively engage with the future of our industry. Whether you’re a teacher, learner, publisher or other, you will leave buzzing with ideas for how you can shape the future of ELT.
