#ElliiCon2023 Speaker Spotlight: Russell Stannard

August 15, 2023

This September 14 and 15, we’ll be hosting ElliiCon2023—a free two-day virtual conference to explore the intersection of technology and traditional teaching. Learn how to maintain human connections with your students in the age of AI while incorporating practical tech tools that can free up more time for crucial aspects of learning.

This article is part of a series of posts introducing our 2023 conference speakers.

Presenter Q & A

Q. The theme of ElliiCon2023 is Humanity & Technology in ELT: Striking a Balance in the Age of AI. In your opinion, is AI a friend or foe of English language teachers? How do you think AI will impact our learners?

Q. What topic will you be focusing on at ElliiCon this year? Can you share a few key points that you plan to touch on?

Q. What's one thing that you would like ElliiCon attendees to know about you before attending your session?

"There are many, many opportunities with AI to do things that we perhaps couldn't do before in language learning."

—Russell Stannard

Is there any way that teachers who are unable to attend the conference as they are working can get a copy of your talk? Will it be saved?
