How are you going to grow in 2014?

Happy new year!2014-01-03 14.10.34
Now that 2013 has left the conversation, how do you plan on growing your teaching skills in 2014?
To help with your planning, I thought it would be worthwhile starting a discussion about some of the upcoming conferences with a focus on Computer or Mobile Assisted Language Learning. Please feel free to suggest any other events which would be of interest to DMLL readers in the comments section below.

  1. If anyone is going to Portland for TESOL 2014, I’ll see you there!! Be on the lookout for a presentation by Jana Moore and myself entitled “”Eyercize, Chunking, and Comprehension: Blending Web 2.0 With Reading Fluency”
