I’ve done two DOS tours and I would gladly do two hundred more. The sessions were so well- organized and the participants so receptive that it was a pleasure to be a presenter, even though I was standing in front of some of the largest groups I’d ever presented to. It was also a delight to be back in some of the cities and towns that I had visited when I lived in Prague in the 90s.
Hall of fame
I have done two Poland tours for DOS to date and can't rate their conferences highly enough: excellent venues, meticulous organization, and really enthusiastic (if demanding!) participants. They just need to work on the weather. Seriously, though, this is a committed and very professional team.
I have worked on several DOS conferences over the years. What I like most is that their novel format is a real opportunity to present something in detail and provide lots of relevant examples of how to use the ideas in class. I give lots of talks and usually I have to pack everything into 45 minutes. The DOS conferences allow me to cover much more material and much more in-depth. It is also nice to be working with practicing teachers, who really appreciate and understand the ideas and their application in the class.
I was lucky enough to be involved in (one of) the first DOS conferences and it was a brilliant experience. So good that we were all keen to repeat it a year later, and did with, I believe, even greater success! Wholly professional and soaked in warmth from start to finish Marta and Greg ensured that everybody involved, participants and, lucky me, the trainer, got full value from the extended sessions. DOS offer really valuable, pragmatic, meaningful days of training, with time - for once – for both substantial input, and participants to experience, enjoy, reflect on and really question the content. Great stuff from start to finish, DOS come highly recommended.
My seminar tour for DOS Poland was superbly organised and very well attended by enthusiastic and highly sophisticated teachers. I have nothing but praise for your complete professionalism...but not forgetting the human touch. The weather may on occasion be cold but the people are certainly not!
I had a great time working with DOS. Marta and Grzegorz looked after me well, organisation was excellent and most importantly, the participants were fantastic!
The DOS conference I attended was full of enthusiastic and professional hard-working teachers. It was a pleasure to work with them, and everything went very smoothly thanks to the great organizational skills of the DOS team.
