Welcome back to MIIS Tales! This week on MIIS Radio we are featuring our 3rd MIIS Tales spotlight in anticipation for tonight’s DLC storytelling event – details can be found here. To give a little background, MATESOL students Emily Durst (May ’15), Anita Krishnan (Dec ’14), and Danny McCarthy (May ’15) attended the national 2014 TESOL conference in Portland, Oregon March 26-29.
In this seven minute podcast, these first-time conference attendees reflect on what they learned, what they liked, and what surprised them. Listen in closely, post a comment, then check out another TESOL Conference podcast by our very own Daurie Mangan-Dimuzio in the feed.

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!
