In line with current demands, ELT Innovators 2020 Conference on EFL Teaching and Learning sets itself as a virtual asynchronous event that offers a profesional development opportunity for EFL teachers of Ecuador. As the theme ¨Learning from one another¨  indicates, the conference seeks to promote mutual learning by providing both presenters and attendees with a space for reflection and feedback on topics realted to the teaching and learning of English in foreign contexts.
