Call for Proposals EVO 2022


The EVO 2022 CfP is now CLOSED

as of the deadline: September 12, 2021




Individuals may propose a session, but we strongly recommend a team of several moderators for each session. At least one moderator should be a TESOL or IATEFL member or member of an affiliate association. Sessions may be on any topic in ESL/EFL (not necessarily about technology) and are free and open to all interested parties. We especially encourage proposals for hands-on workshop sessions involving materials development (whether online or on land) or the exploration of web-based tools or software. The session may follow up on topics from a previous convention or invite pre-discussion of issues or topics in an upcoming convention. To view descriptions of earlier sessions, including last year's, please see EVO Previous Sessions.

How to request access to a submitted proposal in order to collaborate with other co-moderators on that proposal


Each moderator and co-moderator needs to submit a Google form requesting access to the proposals wiki.

  1. Complete and submit this Google Form.
  2. After you have submitted the form, THEN request to join http://evo2022proposals.pbworks.com.
    1. If EVO coordinators receive your request to join the wiki but do not find where you have filled in the Google form,
      1. They will REJECT your request.
      2. You can fill in the form and then REQUEST AGAIN to join the proposals wiki. 
  3. Your request for access will be GRANTED once EVO coordinators can see from your form that you are listed as a co-moderator on the team you are trying to join. 


When you fill in the form, you can give 

  • your name, email, location, occupation, and title of the proposal you are submitting.

  • Where it says “main idea of your proposal” and “target audience”, these are required fields, so just explain that you are submitting an existing proposal in order to work on it with your moderating team.

  • Where it says “names of co-moderators”, give the name of the lead moderator (or the person on your team who is submitting, or submitted the proposal). Co-moderators should state the title of the proposal for the session they are trying to join.
