Date: Saturday, July 14th, 2018 Time: 10:00 AM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Eucharia Donnery (Shonan Institute of Technology)

Event Theme: Process Drama in EFL and Getting Published in Performance-Assisted Learning (PAL)

In addition to the SDD SIG Summer Travelling Conference in Nagoya (details below), there is also a Special Process Drama Workshop on July 14 in Nagoya (Location to be announced), 10:00-12:30 (part 1), 13:30-16:00 (part 2). This is an intensive extended workshop on process drama conducted by a master practitioner. It is aimed at teachers who are new to process drama. The workshop is supported by the JALT Speech, Drama, and Debate SIG. Process drama is a well established teaching approach in many European countries and is gaining interest in Asia as an effective tool in the EFL classroom. In process drama, teachers and students work together to explore different themes. It creates opportunities for students to use language in situations and relationships beyond the usual classroom setting. Cost: Free Note: This free workshop is part of a doctoral research study. Those who register will be contacted and asked to participate. However, participation is completely optional. You can register for the process drama workshop at the SDD Conferences website.

The JALT Speech,Drama, and Debate SIG Summer Travelling Conference 2018 (Nagoya) will be held July 14-15 in Nagoya (location to be announced). The Call for Papers deadline is June 24. Presentation format: poster, short presentation and workshops. Presentation proposals are welcome on the topics of speech, drama, debate, oral interpretation, Reader's Theatre and other performance-assisted learning (PAL) related themes.
