The International Association of TESOL & Education (IATE) was founded in 2021 when the Corona Virus (Covid-19) affected all areas of society around the world. Most schools, colleges, and universities were locked down. Three executive members of the Asia Association of Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Associate Professor Dr. Pham Vu Phi Ho (Van Lang University, Vietnam), Professor Andrew Lian (Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand), and Dr. Ania Lian (Charles Darwin University, Australia), discovered that teachers, professors, and educators around the world, especially in Asia, needed something more than CALL to share their teaching experiences and research. Therefore, the International Association of TESOL & Education came to life.

The IATE recognized the urgent need for a platform where educators could share their experiences and research, particularly in light of the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Hence, the International Conference of TESOL & Education (ICTE) is a key part of the IATE’s mission to advance language teaching and education worldwide. The conference program features keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, and paper presentations, covering a broad range of topics related to language teaching, education, and technology.

The International Conference of TESOL & Education (ICTE) is the premier event for educators, researchers, and professionals in the field of language teaching and education. This conference provides a platform for participants from around the world to share their expertise, exchange ideas, and network with like-minded professionals. The International Conference of TESOL & Education (ICTE) provides a forum for educators to connect and collaborate, particularly in the Asian region. 

The ICTE is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary conversations and collaborations among educators, researchers, and professionals from diverse backgrounds. Participants have the opportunity to engage with cutting-edge research, explore innovative teaching methods, and share their own experiences and insights with a global community of peers.
