Interest Sections, Caucuses, and other member groups of TESOL are invited to sponsor sessions related to the convention.
Pesticides Application (PA)
For six weeks, participants and ESOL experts can engage in collaborative, online discussion 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 convention and will allow a fuller development of ideas than is otherwise possible. Sessions may be on any topic in ESL/EFL and are free and open to all interested parties. Session leaders (moderators), who must be TESOL members, will receive hands-on training in online discussion management and the use of Yahoo! Groups, and they may be asked to help train future session leaders. Moderators need not have previous experience in online teaching. Sessions of EVO must be sponsored by an Interest Section, Caucus, or other member group of TESOL. For further information, please read: What is EVO?
The sessions run for three weeks in December.
The center started offering this short course in 2005, at the request made by the ministry of Agriculture, as a pre-requistfor registred farmers to be able to buy pesticides on requsit store. However, the course is open to farmers and the general public.
