Instructions to Poster Presenters

The poster sessions at the 2018 WAESOLconference are intended to provide graduate (and undergraduate) students an opportunity to share information such as classroom practices, research, cultural information, or other information ESL teachers might find relevant. One advantage of poster sessions is that presenters get informal, one-on-one time with conference participants. Poster sessions also allow presenters to delve into specialized areas within a certain topic area.

General information

  • All presenters must register for the conference.
  • WAESOL does not reimburse presenters for expenses.
  • WAESOL does NOT provide pens, markers, paper, whiteboards, and misc. supplies for presenters. Please bring your own tacks, tape or clips, etc.
  • There is a presenter check-in table on the day of the conference in addition to the regular registration check-in table. Be sure to visit it after you get your name badge at the registration table to confirm your time and room. Presenter certificates are available upon request.
