A recent Babson Survey Research Group reports that about 33 percent of college students are taking at least one course online. More than 2500 U.S. colleges and universities are offering courses online and Indiana University (IU) is one of them. It has seen a significant upswing in enrollment (130%) between 2013 and 2019. IU's EFL/ESL online teaching certificate program, has also seen a spike in recent enrollments.
Given the high interest in online education and the increasing number of TESOL online programs, TESOL's Teacher Educator Interest Section (TEIS) is organizing a webinar on who are the online students, what they are looking for and what gives the students the most satisfaction in online learning.
The webinar features as speakers, IU Associate Vice-President and Director of the Office of Online Education, Chris Foley and Associate Director, Sharon Wavle. The webinar will be moderated by Faridah Pawan, TEIS Chair Elect, Professor of EFL/ESL Teacher Education at Indiana University.
The details are as follows:
Date and Time: December 3, from 11-12pm EST (same time as New York City)

Coming next: In January 2020, the second webinar in the series will feature Vanessa Dennen & Jiyae Bong from Florida State University on Cross-Cultural Dialogues and Cultural Differences in Online Conversations.

This sounds awesome!
Does anyone happen to know of any online courses for ESL students that need remote teachers? I would love to teach online!
