Here is THE great online learning experience of the year. It is all free, you meet a lot of interesting people and you do not have to be a member of any group to participate.
For six weeks from January 15th to February 25th, participants can engage with other ESOL members in collaborative, online discussion sessions 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 land-based TESOL convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas and themes of the convention or of professional interest in general.
***The sessions are free and open to all interested parties. You do not need to be a TESOL member to participate***.
Sessions are organized by TESOL’s CALL Interest Section and run wholly by volunteers who have donated their time to serve the profession.
For full details check the wiki with the call for participation.
Registration starts as from January 1st. 2007
I hope to see many of you there. I particularly recommend the traditional Becoming a Webhead (BaW) for those who are starting online and would like to feel more comfortable in using the different tools.
Carla will be co-moderating a Beginner Session on Blogging while I will be co-moderating one for more advanced users : Webpublishing in Open Participatory Environments.
Graham Stanley will be leading a fun immersive session on Digital Gaming and Language Learning.
