Registration is now open for the 29th annual conference of the Japan-U.S. Teacher Education Consortium (JUSTEC), to be held September 14-17 at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Save $50 by beating the early-bird deadline of June 5!
This year’s conference focuses on “Professional Development in Teacher Education” and will include presentations in three key areas:
- Professional development for in-service educators
- Preservice preparation of teachers to support diverse learner needs
- National-level policy related to preservice or in-service teacher development
When you register for this event, you can also opt to join the preconference site visit to Waikiki Elementary School and a postconference museum tour of the Honolulu Academy of Arts. The conference proper will feature a keynote address and panel discussion, paper and poster presentations, networking and meal events, and more.
AACTE helped establish JUSTEC in the 1980s to unite Japanese and U.S. teacher educators to promote understanding of and collaborative research into issues of mutual interest. The annual seminar is hosted on an alternating basis between the two lead countries and enjoys support from the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology.
Although the early-bird rates expire June 5, online registration for this year’s event is open through July 5. Lodging accommodations are available in dormitories (reserve by July 5) and nearby hotels (reserve by August 1).
