Don't Miss Out! Join IATEFL Brighton Online Now!!

Brighton Online

The excitement is beginning to mount. I have joined Iatefl Brighton online and so now I can keep up with all the action. Wherever you are in the world, if you can't come to the IATEFL Brighton Conference this year, not to worry!! It takes place from 15th - 19th April. The programme includes over 400 workshops, talks, panel discussions and symposiums. The presenters come from over 60 countries!

Take a comfy chair, and view all the thrills and spills of this huge international conference in the comfort of your own home. You can keep up with all the Twitter updates here. I look forward to joining in the discussions and to seeing members of my lovely PLN in person in Brighton.

I had the great honour of moderating the Harrogate Online Learning Technologies Forum last year, and it was a fabulous experience. There were some great discussions on this particular forum and I started one off called "Facebook or Twitter- which do you prefer? This topic was quite popular!

Although I was at home in Abruzzo, I felt as if I was taking part in the conference, because there were so many discussions, interviews with presenters, and live streaming going on that it was really exciting and action-packed.

I still can't believe I'll actually be there in person this year. Presenting at a major international conference like IATEFL Brighton is a dream come true.

I love Brighton and there is so much to see and do in this vibrant city on the coast!! I look forward to walking up and down the historic Brighton Pier! I might even bump into one of the readers of my blog there. Please do say hello if you recognise me.
