21th ICC-Annual Conference 2014, Mainz

Language, Learning and the Brain - Erbacher Hof, Mainz 26th & 27th April 2014

Not surprisingly with this kind of title, the conference gave everyone who came food for thought. We all know that learning happens best in a positive collaborative atmosphere, where we are asked to engage with ideas and with those around us. This was established from the outset, with a hugely entertaining keynote from Professor Marion Grein, and continued through to the final debate with all the theatre of the British parliamentary tradition. Delegates were shown practical ideas for the classroom, treated to a fascinating demonstration by Professor Margarete Imhof of how much we make up what we have heard, and encouraged through a world café event to apply everything to their own professional context. There was even a special conference song!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this such a memorable event!
