The intensive seminar is 19 hours of NESA-registered professional development.
The seminar enables teachers to develop 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 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 eligible to apply
- teachers who are Japanese natives can now attend on Day 2 only (there will be no registered hours however a certificate for 6 hours participation will be issued).
