As the invitation to the 2011 IATEFL Hungary conference has just come out, it seems an appropriate time to look back, especially since I have not done so yet.
I was once again honoured to be asked to fill the role of "Conference Crier", that is MC, for the third time, working again with a terrific team of dedicated organizers and having the pleasure of meeting great presenters. I cannot do justice to them all here, suffice to say that I found all the presentations I attended informative, and enriching. I will though mention a personal highlight...
On a personal professional note, the lessons my students have found the most engaging, the most memorable, and I believe were the most educational were those ones were I took the time to expand the given material at hand by opening a window on the world, something I try to do more and more in my teaching practice.
I must stress that there were many other notable moments for me at the conference, and I may blog about them later... until then have a look at the pictures and the IATEFL Hungary website.
