The CALL Section of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) provides language teachers with the opportunity to participate in the Electronic Village Online (EVO), with professional development to enrich the TESOL face-to-face conferences. The target audience for the sessions includes TESOL convention-goers and those who can only attend online. Interest Sections, Caucuses, and other member groups of TESOL are invited to sponsor sessions related to the convention.

Sessions may be on any topic in ESL/EFL and are free and open to all interested parties.
