Professional development, networking opportunities and resources for TESOL professionals

TasTESOL supports Tasmania’s EAL/D teachers by providing professional development and networking opportunities throughout the year. TasTESOL is affiliated with the Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA). Through ACTA and other state and territory associations, TasTESOL provides members with access to resources, current research, and the opportunity to have their say on local and national issues.
