CELT Conference 2021 News A Note from our President
The CELEA Board has decided that we are going to try something new for our CELT 2021 Conference. All of us know the challenges we are facing at the moment, and like many other organizations, we have decided to make our 2021 CELT virtual. Of course, we will miss seeing one another face-to-face this year, but we are excited about some new possibilities that the virtual conference opens up for us:
+ We will be able to include participants from around the world who would not be able to travel internationally to a face-to-face conference + We will be doing some creative things with the format of the conference that we believe will enhance the conference experience. + We will be able to offer the conference independent of the timing for the main TESOL conference, and avoid conference fatigue.
Our plan is to offer the CELT Conference the week of March 3-6. On March 3 and 4, we will release prerecorded lectures for people to listen to in advance. Then on the evening of Friday, March 5 and the morning of Saturday, March 6 (in America), we will have live sessions, live discussions of the prerecorded lectures with the authors, and our annual business meeting for CELEA.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us for this event, and we are looking forward to seeing you there. If you could take 30 seconds to answer the survey questions in the link below, it would be a big help to us.

NEW LOGO ANNOUNCEMENT The CELEA Executive Board has wanted to update the CELEA logo for the past several years and we are delighted to inaugurate the new logo in our latest issue of our CELEA Newsletter! The design is from Jesse Grimm, a junior Graphic Design major from Huntington University. Several key elements of the CELEA mission are incorporated. First, the gradient coloring from black to blue, which includes various hues, indicates the multitude of contexts and settings in which we all live and teach. Next, the swooping end of the “c” which crosses behind the “l” is a subtle nod to the cross that reminds us all of the death necessary for us to have life. Finally, the end of the “c” reaching out the globe in the center of the “a” represents the reach the organization has to the world.
