The conference was organised by Kristy Taylor who gave this brief:

“On your approval, we would like the session to be in five hourly slots, you will have a different set of students every hour but each hour we would like on a different topic. Some students may attend more than one session and we will also take notes on the sessions that some students can’t make”

Five one-hour slots with some people coming to more than one session. Quite a challenge!

A schedule was devised and posted in advance of the Conference. The response: “My colleague, Sarah Buckley (whom you met last year) was particularly impressed with your role play activity and your spider diagram activity from last year and wondered if these are or could be incorporated this year?”

For the five one-hour slots a strategy was needed that would involve newcomers and be of use to those who were returning. There needed to be a theme as well as revision and the introduction of new points. Plus there would need to be a lot of photocopying – and yet the numbers for each session were not pre-determined.

The final session was a review of the whole Case Study and discussion on the themes. This allowed newcomers and ‘regulars’ alike to be involved.

Thank you so much for everything. Your in-put into Tom’s economics has made a massive difference to him. He has also enjoyed you teaching him, which is more than half of the battle I guess. Thanks also for your understanding with Tom’s stress levels! Hopefully now exams are over (or tomorrow, should I say), things will only improve now! Can’t thank you enough. Your reputation was excellent when we first heard of you, but having experienced the effect your teaching has, you deserve even better! Obviously Tom will be emailing you tomorrow to let you know how he got on and meantime, enough of my compliments! With best wishes. - Sue, Parent
