Many of this year’s presenters have graciously made their presentation materials available for you to view or download through our conference app, accessible via the web or on a mobile device.  To access a web version of the app content from your laptop or desktop computer, click the ‘Get the App’ button below.  You can click the same button from your mobile device to be directed to the Podium app.  Once you’ve downloaded and opened the app, click on ‘TESL Canada 2017’ (it may take a few seconds to load). Then, click the download button at the bottom of the screen. 

Here are some ways that you can search or browse presentations:

  • Click the ‘Events’ icon and select ‘Browse by Day‘ to view a listing of all presentations, sorted by day.
  • Click the ‘Speakers‘ icon to search for a presenter by name.
  • Click the ‘Presentations‘ icon to search for a presentation by name.

To access uploaded files, click on a presentation title. If supplementary materials are available, you will see a blue ‘Download’ bar at the top of the screen (web version) or ‘Abstract Supplement’ (mobile version).  Click through to open or download the materials. If you encounter any issues on your mobile device, try using the desktop version instead.

* Please keep in mind that not all speakers have uploaded materials for their presentations.
