About the Video Modules

Each module includes a video lecture of approximately one hour. For those who are using the modules to complete part of their ESOL faculty development requirements at USF, we have compiled approximately four additional hours of activities and web-based follow-up, totaling an estimated five hours of self- paced instruction per tutorial module. Each module begins with a pre-viewing activity and ends with a post-viewing activity, which is a means for the viewer to document completion of the tutorial module. The post-viewing activity should be completed once the viewer has gone through the entire tutorial module, including the video lecture and the articles, resources, and information on the associated resources page. The responses should reflect the content of both sources.

Intended Scope and Sequence

Although the tutorial modules are intended for teacher educator faculty development, they may be appropriate for use in pre-service and in-service classes as well. We view these tutorial modules as one resource in a constellation of options for faculty to gain knowledge and skills in the area of TESOL. Some modules may be used for self-paced study and others may be incorporated into faculty development workshops and seminars. They were designed as one item on a menu of faculty development opportunities and should not be considered a comprehensive training program. The best faculty development programs combine various activities, including participation in individualized reading and research, workshops/seminars, technology-based instruction, one-on-one technical assistance with a TESOL expert, and co- teaching, to name a few. We hope that these tutorial modules will serve as a useful component of well-rounded faculty development programs.

Most of the tutorial modules are distinct units that can be viewed in any sequence, although we recommend starting with Dr. Crandall's lecture, Teacher Preparation and ESOL.
