This webinar introduces participants to the first of four online professional development courses for adult ESOL teachers, staff, and administrators. Participants will get a tour of the newly developed course, “Course 1: An Introduction to Teaching Adult ESOL”.

The course is structured around the following five modules:
Module 0: Developing a community of teaching and learning
Module 1: Your adult ESOL teaching context
Module 2: Working with adult ESOL learners
Module 3: Planning for adult ESOL teaching and learning
Module 4: Differentiation in adult ESOL classes
The professional development courses are designed to be taken asynchronously within a period of 10 weeks. All courses are structured to have weekly opportunities for synchronous meetings and online exchange with the course instructor, course participants, and Florida Adult ESOL specialists.
