In addition to our face-to-face events, which take place throughout the year, IATEFL BESIG is very active online, organizing a full programme of webinars and other online events on a wide range of topics every year. In an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible, and to fulfil IATEFL’s charitable mandate, these events are open and free to everyone.
The events are organised by the IATEFL BESIG Online Team (BOT), often in partnership with other teaching associations from around the world.
Upcoming and recent events are listed below. An archive of past online events is available for members in the Members-only Area.
The Round Table
Date: 8 August 2021
Talking BE? Step out of the clubhouse and onto the field, and pull up a seat at the IATEFL BESIG Round Table, where a question becomes a quest.
The format: members only, with cameras and mics on, get up to 2 minutes to make their point. As we go around the table, each person can comment, add or pass. Come and see where the journey takes us on Sunday, 8 August, 14:00 – 16:00 UTC.
Go to the Members-only Area to join us. No registration needed.
Please note this event is exclusive to members and the joining link will be posted on the day in the Members-only Area of our website.

The BREAK ROOM
Every 2nd and last Wednesday of the month.
Need a break? Well, slip on your slippers, grab a coffee or tea, get a donut and slip on into the Break Room, a new feature from the IATEFL BESIG is back.
The committee would like to invite members and non-members to join us in online networking meetings. The idea is to provide a platform where both can meet up informally, and chat about life, the universe and everything. If lots of people turn up it will be easy to split into smaller break-out rooms and chat in smaller groups. A great chance to catch up with IATEFL BESIG friends and make new ones.
Just click on the right Wednesday below to enter the Break Room.
