EVO09

Registration for EVO sessions has just started.

I’m about to sign up for two of them:

Collaborative Writing

Why?
Last year I explored (or rather attempted to explore) collaborative writing with my students. Some questions have not been answered yet:

  • How to break the “group work” tradition which always results into a sort of Frankenstein piece of writing.
  • How to facilitate CW. What could be done before. Activities? Warm up activities?
  • How to help students assess their result.

Bonus motivation: WiZiQ sessions will be held.

images4education

Why?
Well, just because I love images.

  • My flickr account is one of my favourite ones.I would love to explore it further.
  • Images make me think, dream, create, imagine…
  • However, I cannot say images are part of my class.

Bonus motivation: Mary Hillis and Joao Alves are among the moderators.

Finally…

I hope to learn a lot, come across old friends, meet new colleagues and have fun.

I feel tempted to sign up for the drama session. I’m in two minds right now. I don’t know whether to follow the organizers’ advice (warning?) :

We strongly recommend that you sign up for no more than two sessions.

or Oscar Wilde’s:

The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.

What to do?
