It is my pleasure to announce the Call for Participation for the Electronic Village Online (EVO) 2016. 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 14 fabulous five-week sessions on a variety of topics, including flipped learning, teaching pronunciation, using Moodle, creating electronic textbooks, using Minecraft to teach English, using technology for CLIL, understanding copyright, and more. For a complete listing and abstracts, visit the Call for Participation at http://evosessions.pbworks.com.
Please note that registration for the sessions will take place from January 3 to January 10, 2016. The sessions begin on January 10 and continue until February 14. To register for a session, follow the instructions on that session's page (Session pages are linked to the CfP.). EVO sessions can be time-consuming, so for your own good, 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.
Visit the Call for Participation wiki at http://evosessions.pbworks.com/w/page/10708567/FrontPage and mark your calendars for EVO registration, January 3 - 10.
Get ready for an unforgettable experience with EVO sessions!!!
