1. What did you enjoy about The Image Conference?
There were a great deal of new and challenging ideas to take in, in simply breathtaking surroundings. I also enjoyed presenting. Getting some positive feedback from participants was nice too!
2. How was The Image Conference different from other conferences you’ve been to?
Obviously, the theme made the conference distinctive, and the environment was pretty unique as well. The atmosphere was slightly less formal than other conferences I’ve been to. And the fact it was on my doorstep was a definite bonus!
3. What were the main discussion points to arise in The Image Conference?
I feel there could have been more open discussion after the sessions I attended, but in terms of informal discussion, ‘gamification’ is the idea I’ve discussed most with other participants and colleagues.
4. Are there any practical activities you saw in The Image Conference which you’re going to use in your classes?
Leading on from the point above, after an afternoon watching the Pauls (Braddock and Driver), I am already looking for ways to ”gamify” tasks and activities.
