Mission of the Electronic Village Online


The goal of the Electronic Village Online (EVO) is to provide free online professional development in a collaborative setting to teachers of English as a second or foreign language. It was created in 2000 as a Special Project by the Computer-Assisted Language Learning Interest Section (CALL-IS) of TESOL and is represented on the Steering Committee of the CALL-IS. True to its beginnings, EVO maintains its volunteer and non-commercial nature, prohibiting advertising and commercial sponsorship. EVO recognizes the contributions of and collaboration with organizations of similar intent, and welcomes and encourages participation and contributions of the IATEFL special interest groups, TESOL and IATEFL affiliates, and other organizations with similar constructive, non-commercial purposes. EVO is open to all participants interested in professional development or groups/teams willing to offer a session, regardless of their affiliation to TESOL, IATEFL or other, whether TESOL or IATEFL members or not.


Welcome to the EVO 2021 Moderators

Professional Development Session



The entire EVO Coordination Team would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our moderators--both those who are new this year and those who are returning, having offered a session once or many times in previous years. We have moderators from around the worldWe on the Coordination Team look forward to learning together with you and preparing an amazing lineup of the 20th anniversary sessions for EVO2021!


Timeline of Moderators PD 


Oct. 18 - Nov 15, 2020


This 4-week training session is designed to prepare you for the best possible experience with online learning and moderating during our five-week session, January 9 - February 14, 2020. Even if you have run an online course before, you will need to adapt to the unique, all-voluntary nature of EVO. Moreover, your active participation in this guided but self-paced training session will help you prepare the website(s) and online materials for your session.  The time you put into the moderator PD session will vary greatly from person to person, but should not be overwhelming for anyone.
