About us


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 (AsiaCALL), 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. Accordingly, The IATE gave birth to the ICTE Press for publication.

Aims & Scope

The mission of the ICTE Press is to give researchers, educators, and teachers from all over the world a place to share their teaching experience and research. This is done through conferences and seminars. It aims to publish journals, journal issues, journal articles, proceedings, and books or course books. Also, the ICTE Press will publish MA Theses or Ph.D. Theses as books. The ICTE Press also welcomes collaboration with universities or faculties for conferences and publications.
