CAFL Croatia held its second in a row conference for teachers and language school managers Be the Teacher, Be the Manager, sponsored by Eaquals, Croatian Chamber of Economy and OUP.
This one-day event on 15 March 2019 included four speakers – experienced teachers, some of whom are directors of study, school leaders, ELT consultants and coursebook writers – Jo Watson, Lindsay Clandfield, Damira Mrsic and Irena Ziger. The conference offered most interesting talks and workshops on topics such as why seek quality accreditation, why, when and how to introduce technology in language learning, how to best give feedback, how to communicate internally.
Participants discussed different reactions to change and also tried their hand at using digital coursebooks on the spot. There was a lot more to take home and into the classroom. The conference was a good mix of academic thinking and practical ideas and tools. Thank you all for participating and providing the CAFL members with such a unique event. Hopefully, the conference will continue to exist on a regular basis.
