It is my pleasure to announce the Call for Participation for the Electronic Village Online (EVO) 2015. A project of TESOL’s Computer-Assisted Language Learning Interest Section (CALL-IS), the EVO has been offering free, open online professional development sessions and workshops to teachers of English around the globe since 2001. This year, we are pleased to offer 13 fabulous five-week sessions on a variety of topics, including using Moodle, creating electronic textbooks, flipped learning, making Machinima in Second Life, teaching pronunciation, using the online game Minecraft to teach English, and more. For a complete listing and abstracts, visit the Call for Participation at http://evosessions.pbworks.com. To enroll in a session, follow the instructions on the session page.
Registration: January 5 – January 11, 2015. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
To register for a session, follow the instructions on that session’s page. EVO sessions can be time-consuming, so for your own good, we encourage you to sign up for no more than two sessions!
Sessions run January 12 – February 15, 2015
As always, EVO sessions are free (you usually need only a computer with Internet access and a desire to learn) and open to all, whether or not you are a TESOL member. They carry no academic credit, and participants may choose the level of involvement that works for them.
