“Learning to Lead from the Periphery”
An entire generation of ELT professionals who started their careers in their twenties and thirties in the 1950s and 1960s are preparing to retire. Therefore, unless the next generation of ELT leaders and managers are properly trained, coached and mentored, there will be a large-scale ‘leadership vacuum’ in the field of TESOL. With that concern in mind, this plenary talk will consider different models of leadership, especially those that relate to ELT professionals, starting with a critique of the long-standing model of ‘leading from the front’, which has dominated the world of Business for decades. In contrast to that, a different model of leadership will be presented, in which those of us on the margins and at the edges, have learned to lead from those positions.

Dr. Andy Curtis
Received his MA in Applied Linguistics and Language Teaching and PhD in International Education from the University of York in England. However, he started his professional life in the medical sciences, as a result of which he has always seen language teaching and learning as a dynamic and organic interplay of creative energies and forces. Andy has more than 20 years of experience as an ELT professional, in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North, South and Central America, together with more than ten years of international ELT leadership experience. He recently retired to start writing his memoirs.
