The 37th Annual Convention of TESOL Greece will take place on the 19th and 20th March 2016, in the Goethe Institut in Athens (Omirou 14-16). This year’s convention is titled Join the Education R-Evolution and it aims to provide a venue for discussing what techniques, methods and practices could be considered ‘revolutionary’ in ELT, and “how to merge teaching techniques and methods with practices which have “evolved” with the advent of educational technology”.

- Jeremy Harmer (author, among other things, of The Practice of English Language Teaching)
- Alan Maley (series editor for the OUP series Resource Books for Teachers)
- Carol Read (Acting Vice President of IATEFL)
