Hello my readers...I hope you're still lingering around, after my extended absence. Jeju got quite busy with diving, and friends, and going away dinners and other good stuff like that.
It was back to reality yesterday with the orientation meeting my uni has every year before the semester starts. It's essentially the only mandatory meeting we have, and it's only twice a year, so it's another reason why I appreciate my uni.
Anyway, the meetings usually feature the top 3 teachers (based on student's evaluations) out of the 26 of us doing a short presentation. And yes, for the first time, I was in the top 3. I presented on my reward/motivation system. It was essentially what I did for my previous Kotesol presentation and what I will do for the Kotesol International Conference 2011 in Seoul Oct. 15/16.
Now, time to get that syllabus in order and organize my online homework thing, and print off attendance sheets and perhaps do a lesson plan or two, or three, or five. It's my style to plan at least a few weeks ahead to avoid the mid-semester crunch.
