A message from your SIG Leader,

Welcome to the MITESOL CALL Special Interest Group! This SIG is a community for any and all ELT professionals interested in Computer Assisted Language Learning and educational technology more broadly.

For anyone who is new to this SIG or interested in connecting with us, I encourage everyone to join our MITESOL CALL SIG Facebook Group. Within this online community, we share links and expertise, ask and answer questions, and offer advice related to educational technology, as it pertains to English Language teaching. Throughout the year, certain members volunteer to be responsible for submitting regular content , but any member is encouraged to post.

Technically, it’s a “closed” group, so you’ll need to “request” to be added to the group, but any interested ELT professional is welcome to join. One does not need to officially be a member of the MITESOL CALL SIG to join the Facebook Group.

-- Austin Kaufmann, MITESOL CALL SIG Leader
