Starting summer 2017, Ohio Dominican University’s (ODU’s) Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Endorsement program will be available completely online. This format makes it possible for working teachers to add an endorsement to their license in just one year of study.

“There is a growing need in Ohio school districts for educators who have a TESOL endorsement and the skills required to work with students for whom English is an additional language. This program is designed specifically to meet those needs,” said Timothy Micek, D.A., director of ODU’s TESOL program. “The online format will allow teachers to pursue their endorsement no matter where they live and work.”

To earn the TESOL Endorsement, teachers will complete the following courses:

  • TSL 520 – Language Acquisition and Development
  • TSL 530 – The English Language
  • TSL 540 – Cultural and Diversity
  • TSL 560 – Instructional Methods in TESOL
  • TSL 580 – Assessment of ESOL Learners

Teachers who complete the endorsement have the opportunity to put those credits toward a Master of Arts in TESOL or a Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction at ODU.
