Only a day away and already the excitement is moving in the social networks and via the Registered Bloggers sites. Take a look around to see what they’re (we are) talking about, stay in touch via Twitter or go directly to the IATEFL Online coverage.
To be so close and yet not be able to go is really sad however I, like many of you out there, do intend to make the most of this wonderful experience online. Obviously being online is not as exciting as meeting colleagues face to face – some that we have only met online, some that we only know about via their amazing work, some that hold us in awe – we will be missing out on those off camera smiles and chit chats in the corners. Whisperings of the next talk, workshop or lunch or pre/after conference drinks, but all in all we onliners (not to confuse with oneliners) will be holding our own heads high as we follow the conference as much as is possible, given time zone and workload committments.
So let’s make a week of it and get the ball rolling as we sit back and wait for the Online Events to begin!
