This workshop is about sharing ideas. Everybody’s ideas seem obvious to them. Others might find these ideas amazing. Do you sometimes ask yourself if what you are doing is worth sharing with others? Do you ask yourself if you are alone in this, or if there are like-minded people out there? Do you ask yourself where to begin, how to state a problem, how to do the research, what to do first? How to write an abstract? How to prepare for a talk? The one thing you need is – authentic passion – “You can just have this and nothing else and you will still rock the world” (Richard Greene – TEDx OrangeCoast 32014.) It should be easy to talk about something you are passionate about, shouldn’t it? By the end of this workshop, I hope the spark of curiosity will be lit among the teachers, and we will see more of those who are ready to share their “obviousness”.
