A Collection of Covid-19 Resources
for English Language Educators
TESL Ontario is continuously compiling resources to assist teachers with online teaching in an effort to help our members who may be transitioning to online teaching or who may want to improve their online teaching skills. We hope you find some of these resources useful.

If you have resources to share with the TESL community, please email us at [email protected]. We will continue to send regular updates, as resources become available.

Stay safe, stay healthy.
