Every year about this time, I publish a post advertising the best free professional development for teachers of English Language Learners — The Electronic Village Online:

For five weeks in January and February, TESOL experts and participants from around the world engage in collaborative online discussions or hands-on virtual workshops of professional and scholarly benefit. These sessions bring together participants for a longer period of time than is permitted by land-based professional development conventions and allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise possible.

Sessions are free and open to anyone around the globe. It is not necessary to be a TESOL member or attend the TESOL Convention in order to participate. All you need is access to the Internet

The sessions begin next week, so sign-up today!

You can also read more about it at a TESOL blog post.
