- Context: Junior/Senior High School
- Content area: Teacher Education (TED)
- Format: Workshop
- Language: English and Japanese
The focus of this workshop is on micro-skills for teacher training and how it can help teachers of English prepare to meet the standards of educational policy in Japan.
In contrast to conventional teacher training, which consists mostly of lectures on teaching methodology we offer an alternative which starts with the idea that teaching is a “performance based” profession. To do this, the teacher needs to practice specific classroom related skills in the company of peers who can offer feedback.
