The Learning Technologies SIG has much to offer its members. From scholarships to CPD schemes, we aim to challenge and inspire teachers to work on the cutting-edge of technology and pedagogy.

See our list of benefits below.



The LTSIG e-newsletter, called LT, is sent by email to members only. Our Newsletter editor will produce around four editions each year. The most recent one was published in October 2019. It includes articles published on our website and LTSIG related news and announcements, as well as exclusive content. It comes as a downloadable .pdf and is also available in a broswer-based flippable version for a short time, too, with its own ISSN. Go to the Members’ Area with the password given in the latest copy.

Call for Articles for our the LTSIG Newsletter

Theme: “Exploring Multimodality in EFL”

Dear colleagues,

We are thrilled to announce the general theme for our upcoming Newsletter: "Multimodality in English as a Foreign Language (EFL)." In our pursuit of enriching educational experiences, we believe understanding and incorporating multimodal approaches (i.e. that combine the use of text with speech, visuals, sound, etc.) can significantly enhance language learning in diverse contexts.

We invite all LTSIG members and non-members alike to contribute articles that delve into the intersection of technology and multimodality in EFL. Whether you have conducted research, implemented innovative strategies, or have insights to share from your practical experiences, we encourage you to contribute to the collective knowledge of our community.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Integrating multimedia resources in EFL classrooms

Exploring the impact of visual aids on language acquisition

Assessing the effectiveness of multimodal approaches in language learning

Implementing technology to support multimodal EFL instruction

Case studies highlighting successful multimodal EFL programmes

Articles on other topics connected with learning technologies and English teaching will also be accepted. Your contributions will showcase your expertise and provide valuable insights for educators and practitioners worldwide. The deadline for article submissions is April 5th, 2024.

Please submit your articles to [email protected] by the deadline, adhering to our submission guidelines available in a pdf document on our website. We look forward to receiving your submissions and creating a newsletter reflecting the cutting-edge work the LTSIG members and colleagues from the interconnected world we all live in do.


Best regards,

Maria Diakou, IATEFL LTSIG Coordinator

Susana Galante, Head of Content and Newsletter Editor

Travel grant scheme

We offer grants to our members to attend and present at conferences around the world. Members have previously been awarded grants to conferences for ELT Malta, TESOL Greece, Digital ELT Ireland, FAAPI Argentina, CyTEA, P.A.R.K. conference, International House Barcelona and the BELTA conference. We have already chosen our roving reporter for IATEFL Manchester 2020.
We give approximately 2 to 3 grants per year so it’s well worth availing this opportunity to become one of our chosen grant winners.


Members already have access to our ebook called Teaching English Reflectively with Technology. in the Members’ Area. This ebook is a project of IATEFL’s Learning Technologies Special Interest Group in collaboration with TESOL’s Computer-assisted Language Learning Interest Section. From 3 February 2020 onward, current and new members can also access our new Research book (see photo of the front cover above) by logging into the main IATEFL website and clicking on your SIG > SIG resources. You can find out more information about this publication, with a link to purchasing it on Amazon if you are not a current member, by clicking on a separate tab at the top of this page. The version currently held on the IATEFL site is a .pdf, but if you purchase it from Amazon it is in e-reader or .epub format.

Members’ area on website

Our Members’ Area is now active and has been since April 2019. It can only be accessed via a password given out with LT. However, with IATEFL Head Office relaunching its main website, a lot of new and existing content in 2020 might migrate over to the SIG area, which our members will automatically be able to access with their unique log-in and password.

CPD member benefit scheme

Our CPD scheme includes sponsor scholarships and opportunities to attend free courses offered for our members.
