The CALL Interest Section of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other
Languages, Inc. (TESOL) offers language teachers world-wide the opportunity
to participate in the Electronic Village Online (EVO), a professional
development project and virtual extension of the TESOL 2014 Convention in
For five weeks in January-February, participants and ESOL experts can
engage in collaborative, online discussion or hands-on virtual workshops of
professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions will bring together
participants for a longer period of time than is permitted by the four-day
convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise
possible in convention sessions.
Session leaders (moderators) need not have previous experience in online
teaching. Co-moderation with several people is strongly recommended.
Moderators will receive hands-on training in online discussion management
and the use of live virtual chat and audio rooms during our moderators'
training session October 21 - November 12, 2013.
If interested in moderating or co-moderating a session, please see

Sessions may be on any topic in ESL/EFL (not necessarily about technology)
and are free and open to all interested parties.
Deadline for proposals: September 22, 2013
