About Vance Stevens

Vance Stevens is a professional development consultant, online facilitator, and a reputed coach. Vance Stevens is the founder and moderator of the Webheads community, an online vibrant community where hundreds of language teachers work together. He also worked in the area of efficacy of CALL, or computer-assisted language learning, which he fondly called SMALL, for social-media assisted language learning. Here his prime job was to implement CALL and train people how computers could be used productively with students.

Stevens professional development can be attributed to his continuous endeavor in assuming leadership roles in many community-based online professional development initiatives over the past decade. Stevens holds extensive conference presentation experience (both in-person and online), and has over 70 publications including research, reviews, articles, chapters, and co-editorship of books.

In the past decade, Stevens worked on promoting professional development and learner autonomy via social media and collaboration in online spaces. He held several workshops on aspects of social networking that interests language teachers; for example how tagging and aggregation work is used by teachers to enable students to keep in touch in socially networked collaborative projects.

Vance Stevens’s experience in his own words

“I have achieved recognition as an experienced teacher, leader of communities of lifelong teacher-learners, and as innovator in educational technology and social networking applied to language learning and computer-mediated communication. I can take or share responsibility to help teachers realize pedagogical outcomes attuned to needs of new age learners through appropriate use of networked technologies.”
