The Electronic Village Online, a project of TESOL's CALL Interest Section, has been offering free online professional development sessions to language teachers worldwide for over ten years now.
January 2015 is bringing a new EVO Call, Electronic Village Online 2015.
This year, there is an offer of 13 incredible five-week sessions on a wide range of topics, including teaching pronunciation, international writing, using Moodle, creating electronic textbooks, flipped learning, making Machinima in Second Life, using Minecraft to teach English, and a lot more.
For the first time in my professional career I will be co-moderating three EVO sessions from January 12 to February 15, hand in hand with a fabulous team of educational leaders, all of them an inspiration for any ESL teacher, and thanks to Shelly Terrell and Dr. Nellie Deutsch, both of whom contacted me and opened a wide new gate towards online development before me.
My sincere gratitude to Shelly and Dr. Deutsch, to our EVO Mentors, our TESOL sponsors and to Nina Liakos, EVO Lead Coordinator.
I am nervously looking forward to starting it all but extremely full of joy to be part of it all too. Do not miss the chance to join these sessions:
