Hello team

A quick question - Do I need to make a request for any of the sessions that are being recorded in case I want to watch them online? I don;t see any live sessions except the morning plenary and interviews.

Awaiting to hear from you.




Hi Manisha, thanks for your question. The live plenaries are available at 9.00 UK time on each day of the conference here https://iatefl.britishcouncil.org/live. There is a live-streamed plenary coming up at 17.25 about 'Language for resilience' on that link too. Other session recordings (which are the videos on demand) are uploaded each day for you to watch throughout the conference. We hope you enjoy IATEFL Online!


its really awesome
