Hello all,

Just wanted to add that coming up this month I and my colleauges of the English teacher training division for the Kanagawa Institute of Language and Culture Studies (神奈川県国際言語文化アカデミアの外国語にかかる教員研修事業.  will be giving a forum on our Advanced Leader Teacher program at this coming JALT conference at the Kobe Convention Center, Portopia, Kobe, Hyogo, Japan October 25th – 28th, 2013

The title of the presentation: A Voyage of Reflective Teaching

The Advanced program gathers 20 English teachers who teach in high schools in Kanagawa, supporting them in action research and professional development in order to create “leader teachers” who will be the hub of change and professional development in their schools.

This program has entered its third year and we will present the changes we have noticed in our participants and the process in promoting that change.

Our presentation will be on Monday October 28th, 10:10-11:40 in room 407 at the convention.
