Executive Committee


Welcome to the ICTE Press, the premier publishing house of the International Association of TESOL & Education (IATE). In 2021, when the world was grappling with the unprecedented challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the IATE was established to provide a platform for educators and researchers to come together and share their experiences and expertise in the field of language teaching and education.

With most schools, colleges, and universities shut down, educators urgently needed a forum where educators could connect and collaborate, particularly in the Asian region. The Asia Association of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (AsiaCALL) recognized this need. Three of its executive members, Associate Professor Dr. Pham Vu Phi Ho, Professor Andrew Lian, and Dr. Ania Lian, founded the IATE to fill this void.

The IATE recognized that educators needed a dedicated publishing house that could publish their research and experiences in an easily accessible format. Thus, the ICTE Press was born. As a professional publisher, we are committed to publishing high-quality content that advances language teaching and education.

Our team of experienced editors and reviewers works closely with authors to ensure their manuscripts meet the highest standards of academic excellence. We publish a range of formats, including monographs, edited volumes, and scholarly journals, and our titles cover a broad spectrum of topics related to language teaching, education, and technology.

We invite educators and researchers worldwide to submit their manuscripts to the ICTE Press. We look forward to collaborating with you and contributing to the advancement of language teaching and education worldwide.

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 classroom research. This is done through conferences and seminars. It aims to publish journal articles, proceedings, and books or course books. Also, the ICTE Press will publish an MA Thesis or a Ph.D. Thesis as a book. The ICTE Press also welcomes collaboration with universities or faculties for conferences and publications.
