Who went? Share your good (and bad) experiences.

Which presentation did others like? Did anyone find any hot job leads and get lucky?

As for me, I went to several. My most memorable was "Teacher perceptions of Arab learners". He tried to explain-away some perceptions that he felt were ill-fitting. Examples: critical thinking vs. rote learning, teacher-centred vs. student-centred, emotional vs. rational, etc.

I did one presentation "Using video in the classroom" Did anyone here attend?

I went to that session too. It was by far the most interesting. I don't think he was trying to explain away anything. His point I think was that TESOL is full of meaningless cliches about 'other' learners.
