Best of CoTESOL
Each year, attendees vote on the presentations they find most useful, relevant and/or engaging. This year, twenty-six presentations earned votes, but one presentation stood out from the rest. This presentation by members of the INTO CSU program had the highest number of votes, and some impressive comments regarding its focus. Tara Brandenburg and Devon Jancin's presentation "10 Interactive Technologies to Engage Millennial Learners" is this year's winner for Best of CoTESOL. Comments included:
CoTESOL will provide the winners with one fully funded trip to attend the 2016 TESOL convention in Baltimore this April. Congratulations to Devon and Tara on this award.
Some materials from the Fall Convention are available online
Handouts, Powerpoints, and other materials from convention presentations can be downloaded from the CoTESOL wiki:
