The 2014 Convention in Photos

The TESOL Annual Convention & Exhibit in Portland, Oregon, USA, brought nearly 7,000 attendees from all over the world to "explore, sustain, and renew" their dedication to teaching the English language.


Educators traveled from more than 100 countries to attend.

Keynote addresses were among the highest in attendance (clockwise from top): David Graddol, Diane Larsen-Freeman, Surin Pitsuwan, Deena Boraie.

Even TESOL founder James Alatis found his way to the keynote sessions!

The TESOL Bookstore sold out of books, while the IS Booths kept busy in discussions with interested members.

Huge crowds were present for the TESOL raffle each day, where TESOL gave away useful prizes, like an iPad.

TESOLers met, mingled, and networked at the Emerging Professionals Reception.

Presenters at the poster sessions stood by to share their work and experiences with other attendees.

Roundtables were, for a second year in a row, a popular session type: Attendees enjoyed the close, personal interactions with presenters.

Leaders gathered at the TESOL Past Presidents' lunch, and Past President Deena Boraie (top, right) handed over the ceremonial gavel to President Yilin Sun (top, left).

Job seekers flocked to the Job MarketPlace, where they were able to meet with recruiters from all around the world.

The exhibit hall floor, packed with exhibitors from the leading educational companies, was one of the most trafficked areas of the convention center.

Academic sessions and InterSections were interactive and useful.

And TESOLers connected and relaxed in between sessions and events!
