Past speakers were asked because of personal/professional relationships to the current EL EC. But this model has left out many talented colleagues. Therefore, to remedy our past mistake, and to ensure we are including all interested parties, we are writing this email to invite current midcareer and senior faculty members to become speakers for our next round of Webinars. Our plan to is to both repeat some topics and introduce new topics. If you are interested in becoming a speaker (with or without a specific topic), please email:
