Thanks to all those who visited our booth at the BCTEAL [British Columbia Teachers of English as an Additional Language] conference over the weekend. Interest in Truth or Dare for English Language Learners was overwhelming at times. It surely didn’t hurt that our table was positioned directly in front of the munchies table. We appreciate the many positive comments and encouragement that we heard over the course of the two-day event. As the de facto “coming out” party for Truth or Dare, TEAL 2011 was a resounding success with plenty of interest in this novel communication game, not to mention on-the-spot sales.
For those who entered the “business card” draw, winners have been selected. The following will each receive a complimentary copy of Truth or Dare:
- Elizabeth Faulkner, STEP Program instructor at Langara College
- Don Bury, University Pathways Manager at EF Education First
- Sandra Carignan, Instructional Coordinator for International Studies at ISS of BC
Three additional copies of the novel communication game were also given out to the 40+ participants of the Catalyst workshop [Experience as a Catalyst for Student-Centered, Conversation-Enabled Learning] led by Truth or Dare creator, Brian Grover.
