Sunday, 5:15 pm: LT SIG Open Forum

Gary Motteram (left) and Gavin Dudeney (right) Gary Motteram (seated, middle, front) talking about the June 2006 event in Beijing The Buffet Networking

This was chaired by out-going SIG Co-ordinator Gavin Dudeney and was well-attended.

Committee members talked about the change of the SIG's name, the SIG Newsletter, SIG website developments, the discussion list and a recent discussion, as well as recent and (then) future SIG events, which are described elsewhere on this website. There followed a question-and-answer session on the SIG's activities and priorities.

A tempting array of prizes (our thanks to the donors!) made the raffle an enjoyable event, and the buffet proved popular. Networking was rampant.

Sunday 6pm: Totally wiki-ed - using wikis in EAP

Tilly Harrison (University of Warwick, England)

Tilly's presentation Tilly's presentation

A wiki is the type of webpage which anyone can edit. I discussed the way I used one in EAP to create a useful vocabulary collection tailor-made by each class, including ways of helping the students remember the words. We discussed the uses we have found for wikis or similar vocabulary teaching techniques.

My materials can be found here.
