Join us at JALT 2019! (Nov 1 – 4)

Teacher Development (TD) SIG and The College and University Educators (CUE) SIG are joining together for our ninth joint forum designed to promote the sharing of professional stories at the 2019 International JALT Conference in Nagoya (Nov 1 – 4). This year’s theme is “Teacher Efficacy and Learner Agency”.

This year the forum will be in true PechaKucha format. Each presentation will be 20 slides set to show for 20 seconds and change by automatic timer. Each presenter will have one chance to present. Audience members and presenters will gather in groups following the presentations to discuss and reflect on the presentations’ contents in the context of this year’s theme. We hope to see you there!
