The Electronic Village Online. 


For five weeks in January and February, Electronic Village Online sessions offer collaborative, online discussion or hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions bring together participants for an extension of themes from the Convention. Sessions are free and open to anyone around the globe. 

Sponsored by TESOL CALL-IS, the EVO offers free teacher professional development for participants from around the world. Last year we had over 2,000 participants in 14 sessions, about half of them from outside the U.S. The sessions are available to both TESOL and non-TESOL members free of charge and are run totally by volunteers. This TESOL CALL-IS Electronic Village Fair Classics will demonstrate examples of several EVO sessions from the 2013 offerings.
