The story?

When we launched the first TW!ST conference in 2014, we made a firm promise: “If we survive the next 5 autumns with the TW!ST, our 5th birthday will be a bit of a refreshing surprise!” Fast-forward to November 2018 and here we are, keeping our promise! This year we invite fewer guests to a shorter but juicier event in a brand new Warsaw location.

The key words for TW!ST’18 are:

  • secrets
  • surprises
  • inspiration
  • networking
  • future
  • brand new voices
  • a brand new format
  • a brand new venue
  • and … our TW!ST get-together this November marks the beginning of the TW!ST celebration which is going to last … for months! Yes!

Not a traditional conference?

No, sorry. Not any more 🙂

In truth, we grew a bit tired of the traditional conference format. The distance between the presenters and participants. The choices about which sessions to miss. The probability of seeing the same session/presenter again. The confusion whether to follow the familiar names or promising topics. The big question mark above our heads: Will the content translate into my own context: my students, my courses, my teaching reality?

The rave reviews of TEDelicious, an interactive event we organized a few years back, made us review the success of that memorable Sunday. We did our homework! What made the experience so special that you keep reminding us of TEDelicious today, after so many years?

TEDelicious was rich in interaction, engaging and activating for everyone. It was shorter, more cosy, with different group activities, with contributions from participants, with classroom-ready ideas alongside the out-of-the-classroom inspiration that you could develop into your own lessons – exactly as you wish. It was easy to customize TEDelicious ideas to your personal teaching situation. You could move the chairs easily so people could face each other while talking. And it was new. And it was optimistic. And it was inclusive.

It wasn’t a conference. It was an inspiring experience.

We have extracted all the best features of TEDelicious and come up with a brand new format for tw!st’18: This year, you are invited to participate in the first ever ELT inspirience for which we selected an amazing location. What’s an inspirience?

MORE TO BE REVEALED NEXT WEEK ...

The theme?

This year we don’t have one theme. We have several! Why not?

You decide which theme makes your teaching heart sing!

there are lessons everywhere

Where do you (and other teachers) look for lesson inspiration? Can you see lessons all around you ?

How do you turn inspiration into a lesson idea?

How do you boost your own creativity?

defy your teaching gravity

When did you last get an aerial view of your teaching?

When did you last try to get out of your teaching rut?

Which teaching habits of yours would you like to kick?

unconference yourself

What do you look for in a  conference for teachers? Is what you usually find there enough?

What’s the alternative?

What can you squeeze out of 4 hours spent with a diverse crowd of teachers?
