ELL-U academics are designed to provide users with a personalized, self-paced, and flexible approach to professional development. ELL-U is modeled after a virtual college campus to provide ESOL practitioners with professional development opportunities and a shared learning community. While ELL-U is not an accredited university, users can earn ELL-U participation hours through their engagement in online courses, study circles, training events, and clubs.
ELL-U registered users will have access to experts in the field through facilitated learning activities, faculty office hours, and online discussions. Visit the Faculty Directory for bios and contact information of the ESOL subject matter experts that are currently members of our faculty.

I would recommend this course to a wide range of ESL and EFL teachers. It would be perfect for students in any MATEOSL program, as well as teachers in an academic ESL setting who need more strategies to teach the students who have gaps in their literacy skills. Additionally, it would be a great resource to teachers of adult learners, as a refresher course to the concepts they have already learned, as well as a reminder of why the work that they are doing is so important.
