-----------------------------PROPOSAL TEMPLATE---------------------------


Session Title: 

Write the complete title of your session (Please don't call it a course!) here.  You can change it later. 

Logo: If you already have a logo for your session, upload the image file to the wiki. If you don‘t have a logo yet, you can add one later, during the moderator training session. (We will help you find/create an appropriate logo if you don't already have one.)

Abstract:  Write a brief (not more than 50 words) description of your session. Your audience is potential participants in the session. Be as specific as possible.

Target audience: State who your main audience is. Who is most likely to be interested in your session? Be as specific as possible (i.e.,not "teachers of English")

Session objectives: Please provide a list of specific objectives. Start with, "By the end of this session, participants will have...

Syllabus: The session syllabus. Include the major focus for each week and at least one activity or task. You will fill in the details during the training session.

Be sure to 
plan time in your syllabus for wrap-up and session evaluations. Don't start a new project or topic in the last week.

Media: How will you communicate with participants during the session? Write in all that apply. (You don't need all of them!)  Be as specific as you are able at this stage. You may make changes during the training session. Remember: you may not require participants to pay for using these platforms. Participation in EVO is free. If you have no idea which platforms you will use, write We don’t know yet.


  • Interactive space (group/community/forum)
  • Content space (where your syllabus, readings, and videos will be) 
  • Live meeting space (for synchronous events/webinars)


Other technology tools: What other technology tools will you introduce or practice with participants? (e.g., AboutMe for introductions, Audacity or Chirbit for recording audio..., etc.). You can add more or make changes during the training session. If you don't know, write "We don't know yet."

Suggested sponsor(s): Sponsors are professional associations who would be willing to advertise your session in their elist or newsletters, and who would help create an audience for your session and an interest in EVO participation. (No money or other physical support is requested!) TESOL Interest Section(s) or affiliate(s), IATEFL Special Interest Group(s), or other group(s) who could sponsor your session, such as JALT, KOTESOL, or AVEALMEC. N.B.: The EVO Coordination Team will arrange for TESOL-IS sponsorship, but please tell us which Interest Section you feel would be most likely to sponsor your session. For non-TESOL organizations, we ask that you list all likely sponsors, but please confirm sponsorship with them yourself after your proposal is accepted.

Moderators: Fill in the table on the page you have created for all session moderators and co-moderators. You can change or add to the list later. Co-moderators are expected to take part in the training session along with moderators.

I understand that session moderators are required to participate in the 5-week Moderators' Development Session from October 13 until November 10, 2019. The EVO session will be offered between January 11 and February 16, 2019.  I understand that EVO sessions are free of advertising and no commercial sponsorship is allowed. Finally, I understand that EVO sessions are free and open to all, and that no academic credit may be given for participation.
