I look forward to hearing your show.
Please add me to your list of potential guests. I would like to discuss best practices in conversation classes and common pitfalls. I'd also be interested in hearing a show about using various technologies in the classroom. For instance, videotaping student presentations, posting them to a website, and having self and peer evaluations has been quite helpful - and popular - among students. Further, asking students to transcribe their own presentations - just two or three minutes - gives them practical insights into their strengths and weaknesses. It also tends to reduce the sometimes considerable gap between student self-perception, audience perception, and instructor evaluation.
