BEA Ignite @ BEA2020

We’re seeking your most innovative teaching ideas.  As part of this quest (and back by popular demand) we present “BEA Ignite” – where you can share your best classroom project/exercise/ideas.  Following the traditional “ignite” format, presenters get 5 minutes and 20 slides to share their passionate teaching idea.  The ten best “ignite” ideas will be selected to make their presentations “live” during a BEA2020 session.
