The JALT Teacher Development SIG will be hosting a forum on ‘Using Video in Language Teacher Education’
Date: Tuesday, December 3 2019
Time: 18:00 – 20:00
Location: Toyo University, Hakusan Campus, Building 10, Room A101

Overview: During the last few decades, there has been an increase in both the use of digital video and understanding of the role it can play in teacher education (Baecher et al., 2018). It has been claimed that this can have a positive impact on trainee and in-service teachers’ engagement, motivation and autonomy. This event considers Major and Watson’s view that beliefs and practices are changing fast and the emergence of recent video-capable technologies is something of a ‘tipping point’ (2018: 50).
This interactive forum will feature both presentation and interview sessions. The three invited speakers will each present about using video for language teacher education purposes with regard to their individual institutional perspectives. In response to these presentations, the invited speakers will then engage with each other in interview sessions. It is hoped that this dialogic element to the forum will help both the speakers and attendees to gain a richer and more collaborative understanding of this forum’s central theme and each other’s work.
