Chat Log

My presentation at the Local Kotesol Meeting

Yesterday, I discussed ‘Creativity in the classroom’ at the Busan-Kyeongnam branch of KOTESOL.  My talk went for about a hundred minutes and I am mostly satisfied with it.

I posted about the upcoming meeting a week or so beforehand and mentioned that I was nervous about it.  I can say now that I was indeed nervous, very nervous, for the first few minutes of my talk.  Teaching students now seems comfortable.  Speaking before my peers remains, well, less comfortable.


Saturday the 18th. Now I’m nervous.

I wrote at the beginning of the semester that I was concerned that I wasn’t nervous enough.  Now I am:

And there goes any anonymity I might have had.  The Busan Gyeongnam branch of KOTESOL can be found here and you can register now for the international conference held October 16-17 in Seoul elsewhere on the site.
