FRIDAY, 10 MAY 2024

Quality Revolution: Rethinking, Reshaping, and Redefining Excellence in ELT

This theme challenges the traditional notions of quality assurance in English Language Teaching (ELT), management, and leadership, urging participants to envision and drive a paradigm shift in how we perceive and ensure excellence in language education.

The theme encourages a deep dive into innovative approaches, disruptive strategies, and transformative frameworks that redefine quality assurance practices. It aims to inspire provocative discussions, ignite change-driven thinking, and propel participants towards reimagining and reshaping the future of ELT quality assurance.

The sessions on the conference Main Day – Friday 10 May – will be recorded and broadcast post-event on NEAS Online to approximately 5,500 participants from more than 25 different countries. There is full catering on this Main Day of the conference with a buffet lunch, morning and afternoon teas and drinks and canapés to finish the day at the Awards Ceremony.

Please note, all times are Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST)
