Completing PD Hours
If you have TESL Ontario accreditation, you must complete 10 hours/year of professional development (PD). Remember to request — and keep — proof of completion of the activity (e.g. a PD certificate, often registration emails from our events do this): TESL Ontario can randomly audit members to check their PD status.
There is a wide range of activities recognized as PD by TESL Ontario. You can find the list of ‘PD Activities Recognized by TESL Ontario‘ on their website.
Online training, e.g. webinars, also count as PD. Follow this link to a list of fantastic online PD recordings.
TESL Ontario Free Webcasting
TESL Ontario members can view up to 100 hours of conference presentations via TESL Ontario’s free webcasting service. All you need is your TESL Ontario membership number and a super-secret password (27carlton – all lowercase, no spaces). Each hour counts as one hour of professional development for your accreditation renewal. Note: if you want to count a webcast as PD hours for accreditation, then after viewing the webcast, remember to download proof of PD from the TESL Ontario website for your records.
Queries related to PD or accreditation should be addressed to Accreditation Coordinator at TESL Ontario.
