Longman Storytelling Conference 2005
Event date: 29-30 May 2005
To share the wealth of stories with our teachers and how to bring them alive in the classroom, Longman held the first-ever Storytelling Conference in Hong Kong from 29-30 May 2005 at Sheraton Hotel, and invited two professional storytellers Karen Tovell and Roger Jenkins, to be the keynote speakers. Karen Tovell is a storyteller and storymaker with over two decades of storytelling experience. Roger Jenkins, who has been storytelling since 1998, is the Artistic Director of Dramaplus Arts in Singapore.

Over the two-day conference, Karen and Roger shared their practical experience and techniques with over 200 teachers from about 110 schools at four workshops: Stories Alive: Storytelling with Children, Stories into Drama, Storytelling as a Teaching Strategy and Stories Galore: Storymaking with Children.

All teachers unanimously agreed that the Conference enhanced their professional development. Let's share some of the encouraging feedback by them and photos from this conference.
