About the talk:
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think “Polish food”? Dumplings (pierogi)? Sausage (kiełbasa)? Maybe something else? What were people eating 100, 200 years ago? This presentation is addressed to those who are interested in food culture overall and in the historical approach to everyday life culture.

Joanna Predota gives the talk Tricks and surprises while teaching heterogeneous groups
The problem of having students on different levels in one group is everyday struggle for teachers of “small languages”. How to keep more advanced students interested? How to help those who are less advanced and motivate them?
