I received this email from Tappedin, and thought I might just give it a nudge.
Tapped In is sending this message as a public service to all members in Taiwan,
China, and Japan.
The Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) conference is an
international forum for the exchange of research in relation to collaborative
learning supported by technology. In 2005, the CSCL conference will be held in
Taipei, Taiwan May30th - June4th. As part of the conference, CSCL invites
teachers to collaborate in the program. Teachers, especially Asian teachers,
may apply to participate in one or more of the following activities:
??? Teachers will be provided with a Web-space to report on conference
presentations to their colleagues in their home communities.
??? Teachers may take part in the closing session to report on how they could
use technologies, pedagogies and assessments they learned about in their
??? Teachers or teacher-researcher pairs may report on exemplary classroom
practices using computer supported collaborative learning.

or contact Mary Lamon (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Hwawei Ko
So I wrote and sent in my applications:
My name is Aiden Yeh and I would like to participate at the CSCL 2005 as a member of the panel or a reporter. I’m doing my PhD studies at the University of Birmingham and currently working as a full-time lecturer at Wen Zao Ursuline College of Foreign Languages. I am a Webhead and member of the TESOL’s Electronic Village Online Sessions 2005 coordinating team. I will also be doing an online workshop as part of the Becoming a Webhead 2005 EVO session on Blended Learning. Please find attached a description of various blended learning task-based projects that I have done this semester at Wen Zao and last school year at National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology.
Wait and see, that's all I have to do now.
