Environmental Responsibility Forum in TESOL

April 19th, 2013 by Dave · 2 Comments

I would like to start an environmental forum in TESOL. The purpose of this forum will be to bring together English language teachers, program administrators, and other English language professionals interested in environmental issues. We will use our network to share materials and other resources in a spirit of collaboration. We will also promote environmentally themed convention sessions, and have a social event / business meeting at TESOL conventions

In order to qualify as a forum, I need to submit a list of names and member IDs of 25 active TESOL members who support this forum. So if you believe that environmental responsibility is something worth discussing within TESOL and are an active TESOL member, please email me your name, your preferred email address, and your TESOL member ID. There is no cost to be in a forum, and you can be a member in as many as you like.

If you would like to be more involved, I have put together a simple survey. In it, I ask for ideas for a name for the forum, and also for opinions related to the round table and discussion session that we will be given at the convention as a forum. Thanks!

    Hi. I used to be a member of TESOL, but I’ve forgotten any info from that. But I am now a fulltime Teaching Associate at the Hong Kong Univ. of Science & Technology in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Dept. The blog site above is for the students here. I also moderate a facebook page: welearnhere. with lots of environmental info. You’re welcome to any and all, and pls spread the word.
