There are numerous benefits of presenting at REALIZE! Forum. First of all, it is convenient. ESL practitioners will present from the comfort of their workplace or home. There are no travel arrangements to make, no fees to pay. Secondly, it is a great opportunity to raise your professional profile within the national ESL community and expand your resume. You will be able to share your knowledge with a broader audience and make new meaningful connections. Last but not least, you will gain valuable public speaking skills in an online format.
Full technological support and guidance will be provided by English Online.
