24th IATEFL Poland Conference
2015 Kraków

Meet our Speakers

"Let's meet and share our lessons learned".

More than 110 workshops and talks! Scores of presenters! Among them:

Peter MEDGYES (IATEFL PL) the incoming President of IATEFL UK, formerly an Education Minister in Hungary, Peter will be presenting a Plenary talk based on humour.

Deena BORAIE (IATEFL PL) is a Past President of TESOL – a large US-based international professional development association for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages. Currently, she is Dean of the School of Continuing Education at the American University in Cairo. Her Plenary talk has the impressive title: "Envisioning the Future of TEFL by Teachers all over the World". So, Deena is an exciting addition to our list of major plenary speakers, or in more usual terms – "a real scoop for IATEFL Poland!"

Ken LACKMAN (IATEFL PL) is a rapidly-rising ELT star, and comes highly recommended, all the way from Canada. He impressed all who saw him at Harrogate this year, and this led to our invitation for Ken to come and shine at Lublin!
