IDAS is imminent

On Friday I leave with a small group of students for my third trip to Slovenia for the International Debate Academy.

It's definitely a good time, and I always look forward to the multiple teaching challenges that it presents. As Tuna mentioned in his debate blog yesterday, he and I will be offering some insight on the event.

This year I hope to do some videoblogging from it to give a different perspective. There will be some discussions, lectures and activities, but also some one-on-one casual conversation, some student interviews and some commentary from me as well. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with this ambitious idea during the IDAS whirlwind.

We'll see if it works out - It seems like a good idea, but IDAS is so intense that there is often little time to look around and take stock of what's going on - there are so many ideas in the air it can be a bit overwhelming at times.

Nevertheless, I hope to offer some perspective from on the ground for you reading about it at home. Perhaps after that you will decide to join us next year . . .
