Call for Volunteers at the 2016 Electronic Village

The Computer-Assisted Language Learning Interest Section (CALL-IS)




CALL for Volunteers
TESOL 2016 Electronic Village
April 5-8, 2016
Baltimore, Maryland, USA


Join us in the Electronic Village as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of TESOL!

The Computer-Assisted Language Learning Intersection (CALL-IS) is asking for volunteers for the Electronic Village (EV) at the 2016 TESOL convention in Baltimore.

Each year, conference attendees provide assistance to EV Event Coordinators and Managers for special events that are ongoing throughout the conference. Volunteering also provides an opportunity to network with tech-savvy CALL-IS members, meet and greet visitors to the EV, and assist event participants with computers and software programs. This is an enjoyable and wonderful experience!

We ask that you volunteer for a two-hour time period (or more). We promise a fun and collegial experience and look forward to having you with us in the Electronic Village.

Volunteers are Greeters, Consultants, or part of the Webcast team.

  • Greeters sit at the front table and welcome attendees.
  • Consultants “roam” the EV and assist participants with computers and software or answer technology- related questions.
  • Webcast team members assist with webcasting selected events

More details will be sent prior to the conference, and we will have a Volunteer Orientation on Wednesday morning at 7:30 (not required but a good overview of what happens in the EV).

To express our appreciation: Volunteers who are registered with a full membership and work 4 hours or more will receive a $50 refund on their registration fee post-convention. (no refunds on partial or student registrations…sorry)

EV Volunteer Hours:

Wednesday, April 6 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Thursday, April 7 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Friday, April 8 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
