2024 NJTESOL/NJBE Spring Conference

Systems of Support for Multilingual Learners

The 2024 conference of the New Jersey Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages/New Jersey Bilingual Educators (NJTESOL/NJBE) will have two components: an in-person conference and a video library conference. 

In-person conference 

The in-person conference will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Brunswick on May 29-31. You can register for one, two or all three days. The conference will feature three keynote speakers: Dr. Ayanna Cooper, Dr. Fernando Naiditch, and Dr. Denise Furlong.  

In addition, you’ll select from many presentations approved for the continuing education requirement, network with your colleagues, and obtain the latest information on state and national initiatives. You can also meet with representatives at the sponsors’ and exhibitors’ booths to find the latest and greatest teaching tools.  

Video library conference 

The video library conference is a select collection of library presentations you will have access to view starting on June 3 using the conference platform. There is no set schedule, and you will be able to view the workshops for three months. By using your unique login, your hours will be tracked so that you can earn professional development hours. Please note that the select collection of presentations will not include the keynotes or special invited guest speakers. 

Presentation topics will include: General Interest, Content Area Instruction, Bilingual/ESL Pre-K through 12, Higher Ed, Teacher Ed, Adult Ed, K-12 Administrators, and Dual Language/Biliteracy. 

Register early for a discounted rate. Registration includes one free year of membership.
