This intensive seminar delivers 19 hours of NESA-registered professional development.
The seminar enables teachers to develop their language skills, gain confidence using Japanese, and to develop language teaching strategies and skills which they can apply in the language classroom.
Specific focuses include the Australian Curriculum, and ICT-based learning. Participants will be immersed in a Japanese language environment suited to their level and will have ample opportunity for networking.
New in 2018:
- teachers who have attended the intensive seminar in previous years are now also eligible to apply
- teachers who are Japanese native speakers can now attend on Day 2 (there will be no registered hours, however, a certificate for 6 hours participation will be issued).
