Korea TESOL: 30 @ 30” Dr Thomas S. C. Farrell selected as one of 30 KOTESOL members who have contributed most exceptionally to KOTESOL and to the field of ELT as a KOTESOL member over 30 years of KOTESOL (1993–2023).

KOTESOL Patron: Thomas Farrell

From time to time, Korea TESOL bestows the KOTESOL Patron Award upon a deserving person who has made exceptionally generous contributions to the organization over the years. This year the KOTESOL Patron Award, only the second in its history, was presented during the opening ceremony at the 2019 Korea TESOL International Conference. President David Shaffer presented the award to Dr. Thomas S.C. Farrell of Brock University in Canada.

Dr. Farrell is an internationally renowned authority on reflective practice and inquiry, and was a featured speaker at this year’s international conference. He has been a plenary speaker at several of our past conferences. Dr. Farrell readily makes himself available for our conferences and even makes special stops in Korea when he is in Asia to provide KOTESOL with one of his well-received workshops.

Many KOTESOL members are familiar with Dr. Farrell through his years-long column on reflective practice that he pens for The English Connection. Dr. Farrell spent close to two decades of his early career teaching EFL in Seoul at the tertiary level. This year, he graciously launched the Thomas Farrell Reflective Language Teacher Award for KOTESOL members. KOTESOL is quite grateful to Dr. Farrell.
