The TESOL CALL-IS Electronic Village Online is a a set of online discussions and workshops that takes place every year from mid-January to mid-February, The present set of workshops, first organized in 2016, aims to help teachers engage in research into their own classrooms, also known as teacher-research or classroom research.
The emphasis is on research by teachers for teachers (for their own professional development), and for the benefit of their students - not on more academic forms of research. In 2017 we placed a particular emphasis on helping teachers in relatively difficult circumstances (large classes, few physical resources, etc.)
At present you can browse workshop sessions (videos, powerpoints and tasks) from the January-February 2017 session, by clicking on the EVO 2017 tab above.
On January 1st, we will open registration for the January-February 2018 session, placing instructions on the EVO2018 page. In the meantime, you can join the Classroom-based research for professional development Facebook group, to obtain updates.
