EVO21 Call for Participation

Celebrate EVO's 20th Anniversary with us!

EVO sessions Jan. 11 - Feb. 14, 2021 - Registration: Jan. 3 - 11, 2021

It is a pleasure to announce the Call for Participation for the Electronic Village Online (EVO) 2021. As a project of TESOL's Computer-Assisted Language Learning Interest Section (CALL-IS), EVO has been offering free, open online professional development sessions and workshops to teachers of English around the globe for 20 years.


For five weeks in January and February, TESOL experts and participants from around the world engage in collaborative online discussions or hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions bring together participants for a longer period of time than is permitted by land-based professional development conventions and allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise possible.


Sessions are free and open to anyone around the globe. It is not necessary to be a TESOL or IATEFL member nor to attend the TESOL Convention in order to participate. All you need is access to the Internet. The sessions carry no academic credit, and participants may choose the level of involvement that works for them.

This year, we are pleased to offer a record of 19 five-week sessions. Please inform your colleagues about this unparalleled professional development opportunity! For descriptions and abstracts of all sessions, visit the Call for Participation at http://evosessions.pbworks.com/w/page/10708567/Call_for_Participation_EVO21.
