Talk / KOTESOL’s “Teacher of the Year” Award


KOTESOL has a new award! The Teacher of the Year award will go to a KOTESOL member who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to our field. Are you such a teacher? Do you know such a teacher? Then, perhaps you know KOTESOL’s first Teacher of the Year! This poster session will include: an overview of the award, including an introduction to the committee members and advisory board; an overview of the application procedure and timeline; and details on required materials and evaluation procedure. It will also be an opportunity for KOTESOL members to provide some feedback and make suggestions for how the award can be improved in the future.
