I would love to learn more about it! Was it a training course? A language course? Very curious!

A lot of great posts (and wonderful discussions in the comments, too). Thank you for connecting us! I remember a quick Twitter exchange earlier in the year about 'un-plugging' the whole course as opposed to using elements of this in the process. Still thinking :-)

I love the idea of this PD event! EdCamps sound like a great idea for getting lots of Ts together and start a conversation (and actions!). My initial Q today was abt TT and customer/learner willingness to pay for it. EdCamp as a format needs sponsors, am I right?

Missed it yesterday, will catch up! 'Prefer not to co-construct knowledge in discussion' sounds sad :-(

Yes, getting an organization to pay for it is one part of the question. Would individual ELT professionals pay for such a course? I mean, knowing that it's going to be completely/partially 'unplugged'? Need to trust the facilitator a lot, I think.

Yes, the learner side and the customer side. Makes me think about (a) expectations (covering smth = learning smth) and (b) preparation/professionalism (might 'dogme' look 'unprepared'?) Hm...

Am planning 'Dogme moments' on a course for new trainers, wondering how far I can go in 'unplugging'...

Q to Twitter: Have you ever been on any training (ELT or non-ELT) planned and facilitated in style? If you have, how was it? If you have not, woud you join such a course (training, etc.) knowing it is going to be unplugged? Thinking about it from customer side.
