From IEP Teacher to Administrator: Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies, and Tips

The presentation is designed to help faculy who are interested, or who have just begun work, in administration. Since the work of faculty members and administrators can be so different, the session provides an overview of important issues, helpful tips, and a variety of useful references and resources. I organized the session and am presenting with two other administrators in the field.

This is the only presentation I am listing. I have given 57 or more over the years, at TESOL, NAFSA, Thailand TESOL, and many other conferences.

CEA Site Reviewer
Since CEA first developed 52 standards for intensive English programs, CEA has represented a solid dedication to professionalism in the field of TESOL. Serving as a reviewer, one has the opportunity to learn about other programs close-up. In studying whether other programs meet CEA standards, one has the opportunity to reflect on the status of one's own program and how it might keep improving. Similarly UCIEP membership allows for much professional sharing on matters of importance to intensive English programs.
