Education is about pushing the boundaries

Education is about pushing the boundaries. A changing global dynamic requires new insights, understandings and innovation which challenge TESOL researchers, policy makers and practitioners to rethink and redefine.

The ACTA International Conference is a biennial event that encourages discussion and application between international TESOL learners and educators.

Hosted by QATESOL in the sunny city of Brisbane, we encourage you to consider submitting an abstract or register for the pre-symposium and three day conference.
