Workshop on Micro-skills at the JALT 2014 Conference in Tsukuba, Japan

Hello everyone,
The In-Service Teacher Training Division of the Kanagawa Institute of Language and Culture is offering a workshop at this year’s Japan Association of Language Teachers International Conference at the Tsukuba International Congress Center, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Sun, Nov 23, 2:10 PM – 3:10 PM; Rm 405 B

  • 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.

See you there,
Peter
