David Paul (Plenary)
Event Date: 
Sunday, June 19, 2016

Teacher Journey’s 2016 was held at the YMCA in Hiroshima on June 19th. Organized in conjunction by the Teacher Development SIG and Hiroshima JALT, the all-day event had a total of 18 presenters plus an outstanding plenary from Hiroshima legend David Paul. Drawing on his vast experiences in Japan as a language teacher, language school owner, and founder of ETJ, Mr. Paul’s plenary offered those in attendance a chance to pick and choose the topics they wanted him to speak on. From stories about developing trust over a game of shogi, to lamentations on the profit motive in education, the plenary was exemplary. The 18 presenters came from all over the country and shared elements of their journeys as language learners, teachers, and materials developers. Total attendance was a modest but extremely diverse 40. An eclectic group of presenters who have taught and learned in a wide variety of contexts shared amazing, insightful, and memorable stories about their respective journeys. According to a post event survey participants and attendees were all very pleased with the quality of the event. Thank you to everyone who worked hard putting this event together, and thank you to the YMCA for being gracious hosts!
