CUE & TED FORUM. After last year’s enormous success with our joint CUE and Teacher Education and Development (TED) forum using a digital kamishibai style, we’re doing it again. This year’s forum title is ‘What makes the difference: Stories from the field’ and we’ll be sharing stories of what has made a difference in people's lives as teachers or in the lives of their students. The format is similar to pecha kucha but with a few variations. Participants will prepare 10 slides, and talk for about 30 seconds per slide, for a five-minute presentation; this presentation will be repeated several times for different audience groups. Please join us for this inspriational event.
