Throughout the year, there are local conferences in different cities as well as regular webinars with well-known practitioners of learner autonomy. In addition, a highlight for many English teachers is the IATEFL annual conference, where LASIG hosts a pre-conference event and a SIG day dedicated to showcasing current projects from around the world.
