Today: successful pre-conference workshop on IS organised by Rodrigo and Flaviane, attended by over 100 people, most of them Brazilians. One of the exercises involved watching, paraphrasing and summarising DAC2015 videos, in groups (watching on smartphones, pausing every minute and then discussing/deciphering). Makes me realise it was really worth the conference team’s effort to record and upload these. People do benefit for a variety of reasons! It means that not just the contents of presentations are available in IS but also that various styles of IS in academic presentations can be watched to practise IS reception.
