The DLC’s very own Daurie Mangan-Dimuzio created a podcast for the International TESOL Convention held in Portland this past March, and it’s awesome! From the sounds of it the convention was fascinating, like academic theater, but then again I’m easily engaged by innovative educational approaches. Basically, TESOL and foreign language professionals came together to share their struggles and insights into the field, but with flavor, and Daurie teases out the highlights from her classmates.
Impassioned by the gathering of language enthusiasts, she interviews three MIIS students who attended the conference – asking them questions about why they attended and what they learned from the experience. Escaping Monterey on a quick plane trip to Portland was amongst the highlights, but listen in to hear about the use of music and music videos to teach writing skills!
