About iTDi

Who we are

iTDi Brings together language teaching professionals, from newcomers to veterans from around the world in a wide range of contexts. Transcending all our differences, we share a common belief that:

"Being a teacher means a lifelong commitment to learning and growing."

What we do

As a social enterprise, we are committed to offering affordable, accessible, and meaningful courses. We focus on developing practical teaching skills and a reflective teaching approach, with an online community steeped in trust, enthusiasm, and respect.

iTDi provides online professional development for language teachers with our highly-acclaimed TESOL Certificate Course, Advanced Skills courses, and Great Minds in Language Education courses. We further expand our teaching and learning community with Monthly Facebook Live sessions and offer a place for teachers’ voices in the iTDi Blog.

Since 2017, we have also begun publishing ELT resource and research books. As with all of our endeavors, iTDi publishing is community-driven, with ideas and new projects emerging from teachers around the world.

The iTDi Principles

Written for teachers by teachers

The iTDi community is full of teachers studying side by side from all around the world. They come from every conceivable teaching context, with a full range of resources, support, and compensation. We’re all on a similar journey of development and we all have something of value to share with others. All teachers deserve equal respect.

It doesn’t matter what your first language is or what qualifications you currently have. In other words, it doesn’t matter where you come from; it matters where you want to go. There is always something new that we can learn.

Teachers are perfectly capable of directing their own professional development. We have also learned, though, that there is real power in learning together. It can be more effective, it provides just the right amount of pressure to get more things done, and it can be entirely more enjoyable than working alone. When we succeed at learning together, we become even better with our successes.

Teachers who want to become better teachers should have the opportunity to do so. Teachers can’t always afford the time or money to travel to conferences or to enroll in degree or certificate courses. Professional development must be of the highest quality, accessible from remote locations, and affordable to all.

Although members of the iTDi faculty have years of experience in various areas of expertise, we are also ongoing learners. We expect to learn from the teachers who join our courses. You have unique insights and experiences to share, and your contribution to our community is invaluable. Every voice matters. We are all on the same journey as teachers and learners.

We fully believe all teachers have the potential to become leaders for other teachers in their communities. We’ve seen this happen again and again, as teachers become not only leaders within their own local communities, but within the international education community as well. Leadership is possible for anyone willing to make the effort.

Being a member of a safe, caring community helps us grow as teachers and as people. The relationships we foster within our community provide us with powerful growth opportunities as we mentor and nurture each other.

As we grow both professionally and personally within our community, and as we become better teachers, we change. We change not only ourselves and the way we teach but we can also have a positive impact on those around us: our students, our colleagues, our schools, and our local communities.

The best way to change the world for the better is to provide quality education for all learners. The best way to do this is to give all teachers the opportunity to become the best teachers they can be. If we do this, we really can change the world.

We strengthen our teaching profession by making sure that all teachers have the opportunity to participate in professional development. At iTDi, we believe that the best way to do this is to work together in a community built on an atmosphere of mutual respect, caring, and trust; to take responsibility for our own professional development and to make this community the first step in making positive change for learners everywhere.

We're proud of our growing community

As a social enterprise, we are constantly working to find win-win situations. We do this by offering fair prices, generous compensation for our dedicated instructors, and opportunities for teachers to become future leaders in our community. In every course or product we offer, paid enrollments subsidize scholarships for teachers in financially challenging contexts.
