Register by August 15 for JUSTEC Seminar
Online registration is now open for the 28th annual seminar of the Japan-U.S. Teacher Education Consortium (JUSTEC), to be held November 4-7, 2016, at Japan’s Ehime University. An early-bird discount is in effect through August 15.
This year’s theme is “Collaborative Teacher Education With Local Communities,” with sessions that aim to explore regional rather than national solutions to local needs for educator preparation. The conference schedule includes an optional site visit to two local schools, a city tour, keynotes and seminar presentations from both U.S. and Japanese educators, networking and meal events, and more.
Participants in the 2015 JUSTEC seminar, hosted by the University of West Florida, enjoy an educational site visit.
This annual JUSTEC seminar continues a decades-long tradition, initiated by AACTE in the 1980s, of Japanese and U.S. teacher educators convening to promote understanding of and collaborative research into education issues of interest in both Japan and the United States. Generally alternating the conference site between the two lead countries, the event enjoys support from the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology.
