Welcome to the Monterey Institute of International Studies and the Northern Regional CATESOL Conference!

Courtney Pahl & Jennifer Grode

Conference Co-Chairs, Courtney Pahl & Jennifer Grode, Monterey Institute

In developing our theme for the conference, “Changing Tides: Transformative Teaching and Learning”, we wanted to encompass both our beautiful location here in Monterey and the changes we are all facing as members of our professional community.

In keeping with this idea of transformation, we are making an effort at this conference to stay “green.”  This site contains resources from a growing number of presenters and we encourage you to check back often.  To subscribe to new posts, enter your email address in the top right-hand corner of the main page.

We look forward to hearing from you, both during and after the conference.  Here’s how:

On this site presenters can contribute materials and links from their session.  Please consider adding a comment on the page for any sessions that were particularly meaningful or useful to you.  Presenters appreciate this feedback!

If you took photos at the conference you are invited to contribute them to the CATESOL North group photo pool on Flickr.  Here’s a sample set of photos that has already been added to the pool.

Moving forward, continue the conversation on Twitter (@gstile, @catesolnorth, @sarspri, and #calno) or on Facebook.

Whether you are joining us in person or as a virtual visitor, welcome to Monterey!
