Make Your Students The Experts: My KOTESOL National Conference Presentation 2012

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been working pretty hard recently getting ready for a presentation at KOTESOL‘s National Conference 2012 in the southern city of Busan. The conference has now been and gone and I’m still here, which is a positive. Actually, my presentation went really well (I thought) and the seven people who came were quite complimentary. I would have liked a few more people to speak to, but at least the small numbers made for a personal and constructive atmosphere.

Having been asked by at least one person, I’m going to share my presentation with you here. Unfortunately I don’t have time to write it up, but if you have time to sit down and watch/listen to it you can watch the Youtube videos below, (as filmed by the wonderful Anne Hendler (@annehendler), thanks!), or watch and listen to one of my slightly ropey practice screencasts further down the page.

If you watch the videos, you’ll need good eyes to see the projector screen, so you might want to take a look at the Prezi first.

I hope you find these useful. If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments section.

Cheers,

Alex

    I love this Alex! Bummed I couldn’t see your presentation and Andee’s. Although, I this review was great. I love how you’ve turned things upside down in the classroom. As an immediate experiment I am having one of my bad students, who has had to come after school, take the next 30 minutes to prepare a lesson for me in Korean history. He immediately smiled and said OK. Looks and sounds like a winner…especially if I can work it into the flow of the textbook. Thanks so much!

    Alex is a great young teacher who has hit the nail on the head with this one! Make the students the teachers. Give them the imputes to learn by taking subjects they know and enjoy and have them teach it to us!
