Upcoming Presentation–Global Education Conference 2010

As you may know, the Global Education Conference 2010 takes place starting Monday, Nov 15th and runs literally round the clock until Friday, Nov 15th. It’s set to be a truly global event with an amazing 317 sessions from 62 different countries scheduled. All presentations will be online and totally free with no registration required!

I’m happy to say as part of  those 317 sessions, I will be presenting my first ever online session. My talk, entitled Directing Young Leaners Towards Effective Self-Assessment will take place on Wednesday, 17th November at 1pm GMT. That’s a great time as it covers lunchtime in Europe, breakfast time in the Americas and dinner time in the Far East! I hope to see as many of you as possible there.

I won’t reveal too much about my session but, my dear PLN, you can help me get ready. I’d like to get your thoughts on the following question: what do you associate with assessment? All I need is a brief answer – one word or a short sentence is enough and I’ll make use of your answers (anonymously!) during my session. Please contribute by adding your thoughts to the following Google doc:

What do you associate with the term ‘assessment’?

Thanks for contributing and I hope to see you at my presentation!

Also, if you have any previous experience using Elluminate, you could help out by volunteering to moderate. Obviously a conference of this scale needs plenty of moderators! If you’re interested, you can get more information here: http://www.globaleducationconference.com/moderator-volunteers.html

  1. All the best with your presentation. Even without a live audience in front of you, I can imagine it will still be quite intense.

  3. Thanks Adam.

    It seems I initially set the google doc to private but I've changed it to public now so it should be working.
