Combining the Best of Virtual and Face-to-Face Events
The DEN Fall Virtual Conference is a free professional development event for educators to learn about the most effective ways to integrate digital media into their instructional practices. It is unique because of its blended environment.
The sessions will be broadcast online, but you can attend either from your own home or at one of the many face-to- face (F2F) events around the world. By attending an event in your area, you get that buzz that can only be experienced by being face to face with others.
If you have anything to do with Language teaching then I'd highly recommend attending future conferences .. or at least cherry picking from the recordings. I understand that IH run two conferences a year ... so keep an eye on their websites or follow the Twitter accounts https://twitter.com/IHworld
