The Japanese Conference welcomes Japanese teachers from Kindergarten through to Year 12 from all sectors, including pre-service teachers. It is a valuable opportunity for teachers to unite, network and share best teaching practices and innovative ideas.
Keynote speaker Kylie Farmer, AFMLTA President (2014-2016) and an experienced teacher of Japanese, will be presenting the newly released Japanese version of the AFMLTA standards and how these align to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. She will provide insights to how Japanese teachers may use these and other resources to build their Professional Development Plans.
Pip Cleaves, Head Teacher Learning Innovation, and Languages will be presenting on the future-focused Japanese classroom and sharing her expertise on how to engage 21st century learners.
Workshop sessions include future-focused learning (project-based learning, blended learning resources and collaborative tools), differentiation, HSC skills and strategies, Content and Language Integrated Learning and Aboriginal perspectives. The conference will also strengthen professional connections, update teachers in the implementation of Japanese syllabuses and deepen knowledge of Japanese language and culture.
The conference will contribute to six hours of QTC Registered PD addressing 3.4.2, 6.1.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
Many aspects to do with professional learning have changed with recent education reforms. The Resource Allocation Model (RAM) funding has now been fully implemented in schools, including the professional learning allocation and, for geographically remote schools, the location allocation which can be used to facilitate staff travel to relevant professional learning events. As such, we are unable to provide travel and/or accommodation subsidies for teachers to attend events.
