In language education in Japan and around the world, almost every teacher’s career path takes the form of a unique and eventful journey. We often take this for granted, but it is exactly these journeys, these narratives of teacher identity formation, that enrich our profession and serve our students.

Teacher Journeys

Since 2011, Teacher Journeys has been many things: from a face-to-face annual conference to a collection of curated videos online and to a synchronous online conference. One thing remained constant: it has been the best venue for teachers across Japan and beyond to share reflections on the circumstances of their situations.

Innovating yet again

Starting this year, Teacher Journeys aims to facilitate a continuous dialogue between presenters and viewers culminating in a synchronous online conference on December 16th, 2023. Whether you want to share a well-thought insight with your colleagues or simply engage in a conversation with your peers, Teacher Journeys is the place to be.
