The Open Non-Conference or “Open Non-Con” is an open forum to discuss authentic problems and questions which affect us all - as teachers, trainers, expats, administrators, facilitators, etc. The content will be provided by us, the attendees, either before or on the day of the Open Non-Con.
For example: Someone would like to introduce or discuss a new text book; someone is looking for something special for a particular student; dealing with or working with an awkward colleague or boss; someone would like some tips on teaching a specific grammar issue, or working with technology; someone is looking for some tips on reducing stress; etc.
Each attendee is given the opportunity to decide upon two topics which they are interested in participating in. Towards the end of the Open Non-Con there will be time to reflect and share group findings.
