Through advances in technology and innovative pedagogical approaches, teachers
have become more confident, creative, and well-rounded. To keep abreast of
current trends and innovations in EFL/ESL theories and practices, interested
parties attend both national and international seminars and conferences. To help
professionals achieve these goals and meet new challenges in the classroom, CULI

methodology.

5. To exchange ideas and experiences to enhance teachers'
professional development

academic sessions
