TESOL: Audiovisual

Audiovisual

image of streaming video, DVD disc, VHS cassette tape

The library has many videos relating to TESOL. Some of them are training videos for ESL students.  Some of them are professional teacher-training videos for TESOL majors.  And others are educational documentaries on English, Linguistics, Culture, and other related topics.  The library has videos in 3 formats: streaming, DVDs, and VHS.

STREAMING.  The library subscribes to streaming videos from several vendors (Kanopy, Alexander Street, etc.)  To find streaming library videos, simply search the library's OneSearch search engine, just like you would for a book (either exact title, or keywords).  You can refine your search results to streaming videos by limiting to "video" on the left sidebar. For example, searching the keyword ESL brings up several videos, such as: Educating English Language Learners.
DVDs. The library also has many physical DVDs.  These are kept at the library's Circulation Desk (first floor, south side) for check-out.  These are also searchable on OneSearch, the same way (titles or keywords), using the left sidebar to limit to "DVDs".  For example, the library has the DVD Accent Reduction Program.
VHS. Although VHS videocassettes are an old/undesirable format, the library has kept some VHS tapes that are related to TESOL.  These tapes are also available for check-out at the Circulation Desk (first floor, south side) and searchable on OneSearch.  Equipment to view these tapes (VCR players) is available in rooms, on the fourth floor north, which can be checked out at the Circulation Desk. Below is a sampling of these VHS tapes. Due to Fall 2020 being virtual, in-library viewing of VHS tapes will not be possible.  Please email John for alternate viewing options.
