Teacher Development Forum at PAN SIG 2018 / Code of Conduct Table

Day/Time: Sunday, 11:00am – 12:30pm
Location: 4502
Exploring The Role That SIGs Play In Teacher Development: Three Interviews
M. Turner1, A. Yoshida2, M. Ellis3
1Toyo University; 2Kanda University of International Studies; 3International Christian University High School

In this forum, three members of the Teacher Development SIG will each conduct a 20-minute interview with a representative from invited SIGs, asking carefully prepared questions that aim to explore the connections and commonalities between SIGs, specific teacher development stories, as well as the individual differences that mark SIGs as unique and special. It is hoped that through conducting such interviews SIGs can co-construct a clearer understanding with each other, whilst strengthening an awareness and interest in each other’s activities. The forum will conclude with an open discussion session between our invited SIG representatives, with audience questions and comments highly encouraged.

Code of Conduct

Katie, Tanja and Gerry will be staffing the Code of Conduct tables. We will have one table in the lobby close to the registration desk, and one upstairs with the SIG tables. We will have a suggestion box to encourage people to express their views. See the Code of Conduct here.
