So the good things:
1. Networking opportunities abounded. If you were in the market for a uni job, then this would definitely have been the place to be.
2. The venue was ideal. Sookmyung university is the perfect place to hold a conference, very close to major public transport points and a plethora of food and drink options just outside the main gate.
3. The students volunteers were great. They could speak English very well and were quite helpful.
4. Some engaging presentations. I particularly enjoyed Andrew Finch on Postmodernism, as well as Paul Nation on Vocab Acquisition. I also attended one about alternative assessment by someone who wasn't a luminary but came away with a few helpful ideas. I'll talk about them in a later post.
