If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t written for a while, thanks. It’s nice to know I’m missed 🙂 There have been a few reasons; I hit the wall (metaphorically) two weeks ago and found myself mentally and physically struggling to do or think about anything. Thus last week was declared a mental week off – I woke up when I wanted, did nothing on my MA, no blogging and set my classes a bunch of project work to absolve myself of any lesson planning. And it worked, I’ve come back feeling much more refreshed and ready to face the teaching world again.
However, this week I’ve still found little time to blog this week as I’ve been working towards the biggest presentation of my career so far (it’s still not that big though) at the KOTESOL National Conference in Busan this Saturday. My presentation is called “Make Your Students the Experts” and will be on in room H at 1:30pm. Here’s a sneak preview of the Prezi (which won’t seem to embed):
On the way through that we’ll touch on classroom discourse, question tagging, professional development, the theory of contingency and a whole load of other stuff. If you’re going to the conference I’d be honoured if you’d come and watch. If you can’t make it though, I’ll upload the whole thing as a screencast next week.
I hope to see you on Saturday.
