Thanks everyone for coming. Some people were having trouble downloading the poster from the conference app, so I’ve posted it here too.
I just got the official word: I will be a featured speaker at the Japan Association for Language Teaching’s 41st Annual International Conference on Language Teaching and Learning & Educational Materials Exhibition in Shizuoka. I will be giving a workshop called Harnessing the power of visual design and a lecture titled Towards systematic materials design with ADDIE. I’m really excited, especially that the conference will be at Granship in Shizuoka. The first JALT conference that I attended was held there in 2003. It’s a real milestone for my career. Twelve years ago I attended JALT as a participant, this year I will be a featured speaker. What a difference 12 years makes! I’m also really excited about the conference theme of “focus on the learner” as that is a big part of who I am as a teacher.
Thanks everyone for coming out! I enjoyed talking with everyone. Keep making supplements!
Thanks again to the Materials Writers Special Interest Group (MW SIG) for inviting me to step in and give a last minute presentation. It was a very interesting and stimulating conversation.
