The Northern California conference for CATESOL (California Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) is coming up next Saturday.  I’m looking forward to participating in a number of the sessions, and will be leading a short workshop on “Using Computers to Learn English and Build Relationships.”

It’ll be my first CATESOL conference, so it will be fun to meet people. 

My workshop will be in their new super-duper computer lab, which may be a little strange since I generally prefer to do these kinds of sessions in classrooms where people can sit together and I use my old-fashioned overhead projector.  I’ll still bring it, just in case (see my post in In Practice).
