English language teaching is an ever-changing field which is constantly incorporating new findings and trends into its practice. Thus, the need for constant teacher participation in professional development activities is essential to stay ahead of the curve and provide engaging and effective learning experiences. With that in mind, the VII Seminar for English Teaching Professionals is entitled “Reinventing Meaningful Trends in English Language Teaching based on Creativity and International Perspectives.”

This yearly seminar, for its 7th edition, is organized by the English Teaching Major for First and Second Cycles of UNED and the Costa Rican Association of Teachers of English-ACPI, provides a space for language teaching professionals to interact with specialists and become familiar with the latest teaching trends in various educational contexts that respond to the needs of EFL language learners.

Be our guest in our hybrid seminar which will take place face-to-face on July 5th  at Archivo Nacional in Zapote, and virtually on July 6th and 7th.  On this website, you will find the agenda, presenters’ biographies, the registration form, and our contacts. If you properly register, you can also have access to complimentary materials designed by our presenters and the links to the programmed sessions.
