Grad Dip Fair, 2012: Planning page
The idea of the fair would be to set up 'stalls' to allow people to share ideas, assignments, etc.
People would wander around, looking at assignments, discussing them with authors, sharing lesson plans, listening to music, whatever.
People wouldn't be 'tied' to a stall -- they could hang out there for a bit but would be also free to wander around to see what else is on offer.

Suggestion:
Savong's School
Based in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The school is run by a man called Svay Savong in a rural village.
The aim of the school is to teach rural students a foreign language e.g. English or Japanese so that they can find jobs in the growing tourist industry which is based in the urban areas of Cambodia. The school also sponsors some students to go to university.

To donate:
donate on the website
Savong recently got Facebook; he communicates regularly. Also he likes to take photos of his students, colleagues, the school, the volunteers, visitors to the school, and bits of Cambodia.
