I stopped adding to this blog in 2014 when I gave up teaching to return to the UK to care for my Mum. At the time, I thought it was going to be a temporary absence from the classroom. As I write this in 2017, however, it feels more permanent, so I have decided to archive this blog. I've deleted all the non-teaching related posts and will leave those that remain as a reference for interested parties.
8th VUS-TESOL Conference, City Hall, Saigon, 21st July 2013
Having attended the 7th conference last year, I was keen to go to this year's meeting, the theme of which was 'Incorporating Technology in ELT - Why and How?' Whilst it didn't attract quite the same calibre of 'star' names as last year (Alan Maley was plenary speaker), the conference was very successful and packed full of interesting and useful presentations and workshops. I will write up the most interesting sessions in a short series of blogposts to follow this one, but you can read a summary of the day's proceedings on the VUS website here.
