Are you ready to be the next YouTube sensation, at least amongst your fellow language training professionals? We’re looking for members like YOU to share your expertise on a topic of your choosing. You will of course have the Exchange team working alongside you, giving you training, support, and encouragement.
The aim of TESL Exchange is to provide a bank of short videos (5 – 15 mins) for our members. We encourage you to consider working with the Exchange team to create a video. Here are some suggested topics:
- Your favourite teaching gems of tried-and-true lesson ideas,
- Technology that has increased student engagement for you,
- Technology that helps you work more efficiently,
- Any time-saving tips, which are always appreciated.
By definition, an exchange is ‘an act of giving one thing and receiving another’.
What are we asking you to give?
- Your time, knowledge, and effort, to work with the Exchange team to produce a video, focusing on one key idea or concept of your choice.
What do we expect that you’ll receive?
- An Exchange team moderator available to consult with when preparing content.
- Training and support throughout the preparation and recording process.
- An Exchange team moderator to facilitate the recording session.
- Available equipment for loan - headset/mic/webcam - if required.

- Recognition for your efforts through our promotion of the video on social media and member emails.
- A new experience and skill set to add to your resumé.
