This year we celebrate 25 years in Teacher Development and as a special birthday treat from NILE to you, we are thrilled to bring the latest insights from many of the leading voices in English language teaching!

For a quarter of a century we have supported thousands of teachers from over one hundred countries. During that time we have worked hard to remain fresh and focused on what matters to teachers in the here and now. Throughout the summer we will turn our attention to the hottest topics currently on the minds of English teachers. And we need your input.

Do you have some burning questions you would love to ask an expert? Now is your chance!

Every Tuesday at 4pm this summer we will bring together a panel of special guests to discuss YOUR questions on a range of exciting subjects. We will cover everything from teaching young learners and creativity in the classroom to ELT management and using technology.


Each one-hour online panel discussion will be a celebration of the great work teachers are doing across the globe as well as a thought-provoking, engaging debate. There will be lots to learn and lots of fun had!


To join us all you have to do is check the programme below, choose the topics you are most interested in and click to register and reserve your place. You will receive your invitation to submit questions for the panellists with your registration confirmation. 

Places are limited – book early to avoid disappointment
