Yokohama JALT:

My Question

Date: Sunday, April 20th, 2014 Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Anyone Attending

Our April event this year will follow a new format - My Question. The idea is that everyone who comes should think of a question or two that they would like to ask the group. This could be a straightforward factual question, a request for suggestions/advice, or a discussion starter. For example:

Teaching advice

  • How do you handle plagiarism?
  • Do you teach pronunciation? How?
  • What writing errors do you think we should correct?

Career advice

  • Iím writing a Japanese CV, but I donít know what to put in this section here.
  • What kind of questions did you get at your job interviews for a university position?
  • What job websites are best?

Admin advice

  • Has anyone set up a graded reader library without school funding?
  • My teaching group shares a lot of worksheets/materials, but sharing by email is getting fiddly. Is there a better way?
  • Some of the teachers I supervise don't use the assigned textbooks. Students are complaining. What should I do?

Research/Publishing Advice

  • How do I choose a journal to publish in?
  • I want to do a quantitative project, but I donít know statistics. Where can I learn?
  • Whats the best way to analyse interview data?

Everyone who comes should think of a question or two that they would like to ask the group.
