Instant Relevance: Using Today’s Experiences in Tomorrow’s Lessons
      with Denis Sheeran

Classes are too often guided by textbooks and dry course materials. But every day, teachers experience moments that can and should be used in their classrooms the very next day. Instant Relevance is the idea of using today’s experiences in tomorrow’s lessons. We have reached a point where the question “when am I going to use this in real life” has become a joke among teachers and students. Denis presents an engaging and practical session that can help teachers change that question to one of wonder. “Where in your life did you get THAT from?” Teachers will leave this session with ways to connect their content to their students’ lives the next day!
