In 2016, NCTE launched a public speaker series focused on language teacher professional development called PD Talks: Professional Development Sessions with the goal of serving the local ELT community during the interim period between conferences. Initially held every two months at the Mark Twain Library, the talks are now hosted monthly in a virtual format, expanding their reach and impact. This change in format has allowed the series to grow enormously, with the 2022 series impacting a global audience of over 1,200 teachers from 38 countries. 

PD Talks are part of our commitment to generate training and professional development spaces for English language teaching professionals in order to provide them with tools and ideas so that more educators, they become agents of change.
