TESOL CALL-IS is pleased to offer this presentation of The Electronic Village Online: Best of 2019, highlighting outstanding sessions from this year's EVO. Every year, for five weeks in January-February, participants and ESOL experts engage in collaborative, online discussion or hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These five-week sessions allow a fuller development of ideas than is possible in convention sessions. EVO sessions are sponsored by a TESOL Interest Section or affiliate, an IATEFL Special Interest Group, or other groups or affiliates, who provide no financial support. You can visit to learn more.


Come to the EVO Sessions on Thursday morning or Friday afternoon, or both (the presentations do not repeat, but different presentations are given on each day).
