It is a pleasure to announce the Call for Participation for the Electronic Village Online (EVO) 2017. 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 16 five-week sessions on a variety of topics, including using QR Codes in ESL/EFL classes, experiential learning for teacher trainers, using technology for Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), teaching English to young learners, using Minecraft to teach English, conducting classroom-based research, and more. For a complete listing and abstracts, visit the Call for Participation at tinyurl.com/EVO2017CfP. To enroll in a session, follow the instructions on the session page.
Please note that registration for the sessions will take place from January 1 – January 8, 2017. The sessions begin on January 8 and continue until February 12. To register for a session, follow the instructions on that session’s page (Session pages are linked to the titles in the CfP.). EVO sessions can be time-consuming, so we encourage you to sign up for no more than two sessions!
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.
Mark your calendars now for EVO registration, January 1 – 8. And get ready for an unforgettable experience!
Please share this invitation with your colleagues and e-lists, and thank you for helping us to spread the word!
