And finally we had the event what we had been waiting for weeks.
I was EXACTLY worth waiting..
With its amazing Plenary Speakers , awesome concurrent sessions and great workshops addressing different topics of modern ELT world, I think almost everybody ,who attended the ceremony ( and also watched online) , left Yeditepe University with full of inspiration and contacts.
As usual, The EVENT was again very well-organised from the first moment till the final moment.
Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Evening Activities , Organisation Committee’s jop were all well-organized.
What makes the event a bit more different and special is its power on using social media very actively.
During the conference, participants ( both on-site and watching online) showed active involvement by Twitter with #istekelt.
That was very successful part of it. But there was one more novelty that made it unforgettable; during the sessions, the tweets streamed and they were projected on a big white screen . It was very enjoyable and engaging for all of us . At the end of the conference, there participants ,who showed active involvement in social media in terms of not only quantity but also quality of tweets, won Ipods as prizes.

Here, I would like to thank Burcu Akyol,the conference organizer and Şirin Soyöz , British Council for giving us to be in this team, called Social Media Team (Sponsored By British Council & Unlimited Education Services)
It was great experience to be a part of this pioneering event and team.
I would like to thank all social team members for great cooperation
Finally, ISTEK ELT CONFERENCE again inspired us and renewed ourselves for ELT issues.
Thanks a lot..
