Ethan Trinh (they/them)

Keynote Speaker

TESOL teacher, educator, writer, and researcher. TEDx presenter, co-editor of Critical Storytelling: Multilingual Immigrants in the US.

From critical self to critical praxis: Transforming IDEA to ACTION in ELT

In this presentation, I invite the attendees to co-think/-write/-see/-feel with me. Firstly, we
will critically reflect on our teaching and learning English journeys. Then, we share challenges and
successes to co-create a just, equitable, accessible, and safe space for all identities in English
classrooms. We will close out the presentation by suggesting pedagogical approaches to incorporate
Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) into actions in ELT in Colombia, in specific, and in
the world, in general. Therefore, not only am I a keynote speaker of this conference, but every
attendee is a keynote speaker themselves to co-build a glocal classroom after leaving the space.
