Osaka JALT:

Tech Day +Plus 2013

Date: Saturday, September 28th, 2013 Time: 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Various speakers; Keynote speaker Thomas Robb (Kyoto Sangyo University)

After a year's break, Tech Day +Plus is back! Tech Day started as a casual get together in 2005 but has grown to become one of Osaka JALT's biggest and best-loved events of the year, including a great dinner party afterwards. Our goal is to share ideas on a wide range of topics, both tech-related and non-tech alike.

This year we're teaming up with Kobe JALT and are holding it at Otemae University in Itami, just 75 meters from Inano station (about 15 minutes west of Umeda on the Hankyu line, or 10 minutes east of Nishinomiyakitaguchi station). The themes of Tech Day are simplicity and practicality - ideas that language teachers and learners can use either in or out of the classroom.

In addition to our "Tech" presentations that will take place in fully equipped computer labs, we'll also have a wide range of presentations on non-tech topics in the "Plus" rooms.

Call for participation has been extended
The call for presentations is now open, so please submit your proposal via their website. The call deadline is Sept. 16, so please think about sharing your teaching ideas (whether tech-related or not) in a poster, or a 25-, 45-, or 60-minute presentation to help start the second semester with splendid skills. September is already here, so mark your calendar and start getting your presentations ready. It's going to be a great day!
