A Taste of Teacher Development

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 19 May 2012 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Speaker: 
Steven Herder

For all of us, professional development (PD) means improving as a teacher and learner. You can choose to do it alone by self-study or you can do it through collaboration and shared experiences in a community of like-minded professionals. It used to be costly and time-consuming to join PD courses but not anymore with the ongoing proliferation of online learning opportunities.

For many foreign and international families living in Japan, there is both a need and a desire to raise their children in both Japanese and another language.
