With a focus on teacher-research to address difficult teaching situations, a TESOL Electronic Village Online (EVO) on 'Classroom-based research for professional development' will be live again in January–February 2018.

The EVO provides a hands-on introduction to inquiry-based teacher development, especially (though not exclusively) for teachers working in difficult circumstances (large classes, low-resource classrooms, etc.). The five-week syllabus will take participants through different stages of teacher-research, engaging them in practical activities to gradually build their confidence in teacher-research. There will be a series of webinars, and a team of volunteers will provide mentoring. The EVO will be the last event in the International Festival of Teacher-research in ELT 2017–2018.

​​Registration begins on 1st January 2018 and ends on 13th January. Activities begin on 14th January, going on until 17th February, requiring a commitment of 2-3 hours per week. There will also be some final presentations by participants online in March. Participation will be absolutely free. 

Before registration opens on January 1st 2018, you can join the Classroom-based research for professional development Facebook group, to obtain updates and reminders.
