Lighthouse Summer Symposium
Monday, July 22, Ferris State University welcomes over 50 educators from Michigan, Turkey, and China to focus on key issues related to teaching English as a second language. The symposium was designed to provide a unique, hands-on professional development opportunity for practitioners in the TESOL field.
The professional networking opportunity that this symposium offers has the potential to impact thousands of students, about 100 students at Ferris alone.
Three days of workshop sessions, along with key note speakers will help those teaching ESL to help their students develop the skills for success in higher education. The Lighthouse symposium will not only showcase opportunities in the TESOL field, but also what Ferris's campus has to offer and what West Michigan provides.
