Is anyone planning to go to the ETA-ROC conference (Nov 11-13)? [strike]The accommodation isn’t too expensive, but I wonder if anyone (nice, clean, responsible, NOT serial killer) would like to share a room at the conference center’s dorm.
[strike]If you don’t want to share a room (no worries, like I said: the dorm isn’t all that expensive),[/strike]does anyone want to meet up to plan which sessions to attend and then later share what we learned?
I’ll be going to the conference, though I expect to have rented a room in Taipei for the month at that point. But I’d love to meet up! I’m presenting on Sunday, and don’t expect to be up there on Friday, though that could change.
Hi! Yup, I highlighted your workshop on the schedule. :+) It’ll be great to meet you, finally!
It ends up that most of the rooms at the dorm are booked except for a six-person one, so I might just get a hotel room somewhere in Tian Mu. ha, or maybe I’ll save the couple thou and just sleep in my car. (j/k)
I’m going to change the name of this thread to “ETA-ROC - Anyone going?”…
I’m actually demonstrating.
The original idea was that I would demonstrate how CI-based instruction is done (using the TPRS method specifically) in conjunction with Krashen’s presentation. However, I don’t think anyone told the ETA that the two were related in any way, so obviously, with my huge international name recognition I ended up relegated to Sunday afternoon.
If it rains through Saturday and then finally clears up Sunday, I will be hard-put to attend my own session! Or maybe we can move it outdoors, me and the four people who’ll show up.
