    Hi Etsy:

    What are some of the courses you teach?  You may be interested in joining some of TESOL's Communities of Practice, like the English as a Foreign Language Interest Section (EFL-IS), to connect with other teachers who share your professional interests.

    I just taught a course on Materials in Language Teaching over the summer.  What kinds of projects do you have your students do in your materials design course?

    One project my students did was a textbook evaluation.  They had to describe their teaching context and learner population, select 10 criteria they were looking for in a textbook and justify the selection of those criteria, and then evaluate a textbook using those criteria.  They created a video presentation where they showed sections of the textbook and explained how the textbook met/didn't met each of the criteria.  Finally, they made a decision whether they would or would not adopt the textbook for their teaching context.  The students did a good job on the project, and it was easy to adapt to the online environment.
