The EVOlution of Jan!

Personal feedback on the 3-day event is on my main blog HERE,

Jan's EVOlution webinar resources for Connecting Online MOOC 2015


The EVOlution of Jan is about how my life has been transformed by the TESOL Electronic Village Online yearly sessions that I have been attending regularly, since 2009. It has been a transformational journey of liberating learning opportunities, exciting experiments with new tools, and inspirational encounters with the wonderful groups of organizers, co-ordinators, moderators, mentors and participants from each of the sessions.

This is how I always feel doing an EVO session. Comic created with Creaza.

This special presentation is my personal and heartfelt ............

......... to everyone who has been involved with the sessions I have attended as a participant, and most recently for the past two years, as a member of the moderating team for the EVO Crafting the Perfect eTextbook session.

I aim to outline what I have personally learned from participating in these sessions and hopefully this will encourage more people to join and attend in future years. The Electronic Village Online sessions are usually held for five weeks in January - February each year. They are open to teachers from around the world and a huge variety of topics are discussed and explored such as the sessions included for 2015 below in the ABCYa word cloud:
