Rubena´s presentation was inspiring, and providing lots of food for thought. In a comprehensible way, using easy-to-understand examples, she presented the theory that should be behind materials creation for f2f, blended and totally online classes. Interaction, negotiation of meaning, authentic tasks, input, intake and output were some of the topics she dealt with. A very motivated audience asked a lot of questions at the end of the session, and Rubena answered all of them fully.
