One thought on “2011 Kabikolan Conference on Language and Education

  1. Just a suggestion to future organizers of conferences/seminars like the Kabikolan Conference this year or the MLE Conference in Cagayan de Oro City a year ago: Try to narrow down the subject of the conference/seminar to one dominant subject and deal with it comprehensively, adequately to make an indelible impression — instead of packing in a whole lot, no matter how related, about which the attendees generally would just soon forget. We’re doing the same thing that we’re doing in our own educational system: trying to make someone a Jack of all trades, master of none; that someone, in many cases, winding up being less than competent in even just one trade…

    If you have any misgivings about this suggestion, try asking any attendee a day later, or a week later about a few things discussed in the conference.

    How about organizing one-topic webinars (not webcasts) to make it easier (and cheaper) to attend and/or participate meaningfully?
