TESL Ontario is developing the TESL Ontario YouTube Channel to provide members with a libaray of video tutorials, video lessons and other video resources designed for TESL professionals. There are three new video series' that are being developed by TESL Ontario for members including:
May 2021 Releases!
The TESL Exchange series was created to highlight the fantastic ELT Professionals in our community. In a short 5 to 15 minute-long video, presenters share a skill, activity, application, or any other topic they believe will be of use to others in the field. The concept of this series is to replicate the exchange of ideas that often happens in a vibrant community of practice. These “how-to” videos are meant to be inspiring first-steps for ELT Professionals to explore and experiment.
Format: After being introduced by a moderator, presenters deliver a detailed presentation about a very specific area or topic. They very clearly explain how to go about something in particular such as how to use an application, how to do a classroom activity, or how to organize important documents. The video usually has a practical example which allows for the viewer to see or try this new skill out themselves.
One new TESL Exchange video will be released each month. The videos will be posted on the TESL Ontario YouTube Channel in a dedicated TESL Exchange Video playlist.

Each month, the TESL Ontario YouTube team releases an original content video produced and created by our innovative volunteers. In each video, a team member explores a topic from their individual point-of-view. The result is a uniquely authentic piece of work that intimately reflects the imaginings of a TESL Ontario member and volunteer. These relatable pieces are then put on YouTube for all to enjoy and reflect on.
Format: TESL Perspective videos can take the form of website or textbook reviews, informal discussions, interviews, or informational videos. Any topic that is relevant to ELT professionals can be explored in a myriad of ways in this video series.
One new TESL Perspectives video will be released each month. The videos will be posted on the TESL Ontario YouTube Channel in a dedicated TESL Perspectives Video playlist.
