    Online Students – Who they are? What they look for? What is online learning satisfaction? (The Rolling Stones, notwithstanding!)

    TESOL's Teacher Educator Interest Section (TEIS) is continuing its live webinar series. We begin the series this season on students in online education. (See poster attachment).

    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. The IU EFL/ESL teaching certificate program has seen a similar spike.

    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?

    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)

    Location: https://iu.zoom.us/my/fpawan

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