THT/Hue 2008:  Teacher talk on the banks of the Perfume River

From June 13th - 15th, 2008, THT volunteers Elizabeth King, Gerald Couzens, Steve Wolfe, Joseph Tomei, George Mano, Roger Palmer, Ronald Klein, Peter Wanner, and Pat Dougherty put on a conference at Hue University, in Hue, Vietnam. This was the third annual Teachers Helping Teachers/University of Hue program, and it was the largest yet, with 200 high school and junior high school teachers in attendance from all over Vietnam. 

The conference theme was Teaching Techniques for the 21st Century.  With this theme in mind, our nine THT presenters gave a practical mix of theory and application to the attendees.  When asked in an Internet survey about what they enjoyed about the program, one of the Vietnamese teachers had this to say:

There were many interesting topics that are helpful to my teaching. Also, the presenters were very whole-hearted.
