Deadline approaching--Teacher Development Symposium

Assisting the Professional Development of Teachers

The 2024 Teacher Development Symposium will be held online on Saturday 20th January from 1:00 to 6:00 pm JST.

The symposium is a chance for teachers, trainee teachers and researchers involved in language education to share their research, ideas, activities and opinions related to the profession.  The symposium is also an excellent opportunity to meet fellow teachers, researchers and trainee teachers from the central Japan region and beyond. 


We welcome presentation proposals from practicing teachers, researchers and trainee teachers on subjects relating to the profession of language teaching. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please see the Call for Presentation Proposals page:


Teacher Development Symposium

Date: Saturday 20th January 2024 

Time: 1pm - 6pm JST

Place: Online

Call for Presentation Proposals


Teachers attending the Teacher Development Symposium will come away with knowledge, activities, skills and awareness that can aid them in their teaching practice. Presentations proposals should, ideally, offer support to these ends. 


The Teacher Development Symposium at NUFS welcomes two types of proposal:


Short Research Presentation (25 minutes)

These presentations showcase research into areas closely connected to the profession of language teaching. Ideally, presentations will allow for a short time at the end of the presentation for questions and comments.


Practice-oriented Presentation or Workshop (25 minutes or 1 hour)

These sessions are focused more on expanding the toolkit of practicing teachers. Typically, these sessions should be shorter (25 minutes) presentations of successful classroom activities / course programs / professional development systems or longer (1 hour) workshop-style sessions that have a more interactive and hands-on approach.


Deadline for Proposals  -  24th September 2023

Proposal Decision Notifications -  25th October 2023


*Following the symposium, presenters are welcome to submit a paper version of their presentation to be considered for publication in the Teacher Development Proceedings. The Teacher Development Proceedings of previous events can be seen by looking at the pages of previous years.
