We are happy to announce that this year, the Teacher Development SIG, in partnership with the Nankyu JALT Chapter, will have our annual Teacher Journeys Conference at Sojo University in Kumamoto, on June 29. Be on the look out for more announcements about this conference in the coming weeks, including the call for proposals.
We look forward to seeing you in Kumamoto!
Teacher Identity and Emotions Rikkyo University, Wednesday 20th March, 13:00-16:00. Presentations and workshops by Christina Gkonou and Sam Morris.
Do you have a teacher reflective practice or development group that meets regularly? Would you like to start one? The TD SIG would like to help!
We offer funding (up to 5,000 yen) for coffee/snacks at such meetings as a way to support teachers getting together to talk about their work and to help build teacher communities around Japan.
You would need to submit receipts for whatever you purchase. And we would also ask you to submit a brief account of the gathering (who attended? what was discussed? are there plans for more meetings?) for the TD SIG newsletter. Photos would also be appreciated.
Please contact Mike Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
