Poll
When attending the TESOL Conference, I am more interested in:
attending Academic and Intersection Sessions
listening to keynote addresses
attending workshops, demonstrations, research presentations and other smaller sessions
networking with colleagues
going out at night and enjoying the local flavor of the hosting city
equal interest in all of the above
