Many teachers have ideal skill sets for creating teaching and learning materials and frequently put them to good use in their own classrooms. However, what are the next steps to move into professional publishing for a broader audience? More than ever before, there are a range of options from self-publishing, creating small-scale materials sold on sites that cater to teachers one PDF at a time, to working with a university press or an established publisher. In this shamelessly autobiographical talk, Dr. Ken Beatty discusses projects with publishers in Asia, Australia, England and North America. He outlines a range of options, the necessary skills, and the steps that potential authors and materials developers might take, as well as the common pitfalls to avoid.

Dr. Ken Beatty, Anaheim University TESOL Professor, has worked in secondary schools and universities in Asia, the Middle East, and North and South America, lecturing on language teaching and computer-assisted language learning from the primary through university levels and is author of 130 textbooks. He has given 300+ teacher-training sessions and 100+ conference presentations in 33 countries. His most recent books are Learning English for Academic Purposes for Pearson Canada.
