CFP: Electronic Village Online 2016

It’s time for another round of the Electronic Village Online!

Since 2001, the Electronic Village Online, a project of  our Interest Section, has been offering free online professional development sessions to language teachers world-wide.  We are now looking for inspiring educators who would like to moderate an online session in EVO 2016. The direct link to our formal Call for Proposals is here.

Proposals may be on any topic relevant to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages (not only technology related). There will be a training session for all moderators and co-moderators from November 1-29, 2015, when  moderating teams will create the online spaces for their session and finalize their syllabus with the assistance of the EVO Coordination Team. The actual EVO sessions for this season will take place between January 10 and February 14, 2016.

Potential moderators will find instructions on how to create a page for their proposal here. Proposals are due September 6, 2015. 

Feel free to forward this Call for Proposals to other e-lists and to your personal learning networks. Thank you for helping us spread the word!

To see what types of sessions were offered in the past, please look here.

Electronic Village Online 2015

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 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.
