Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

TESOL for Anyone Who Wants to Teach


Course Description
The aim of the course is to connect with TESOL educators from around the world for collaborative exchange of ideas and best practices on how to teach English to speakers of other languages in face-to-face, blended and/or fully online learning environments, and in the flipped class. The course is ongoing with live classes, workshops, and demonstrations of innovations and best practices by guest speakers. The focus of the workshops will depend greatly on the needs of the members of the course.

The participants will collaborate, share ideas, and decide what they need for their classes and courses. The goal is for TESOL teachers to connect for learning and best practices, and to inspire one another. The topics will include classroom management, creating socially engaging learning activities, integrating web technology and live classes such as WzIQ for blended and fully online learning and the flipped classes, and ideas on how to teach language learning skills. Learning with technology will include mobile learning and teaching with androids, iPhone, and iPads.
