CELT Chair, Dr. Eleanor Pease announced that the keynote speaker will be Dr. Zoltan Dornyei from the UK's University of Nottingham, who will address "Vision and the Ideal L2 Teacher Self." A second plenary speaker is Ms. Lavinia A'Costa, Coordinator of the ESL Program at Brooklyn Tabernacle pastored by Rev. Jim Cymbala. Her presentation is titled, "We're Doing It With Vision!"
CELT is held every year at a Christian college prior to the opening of the TESOL convention, which will be held this year at the Hilton Hotel from April 2-5.
