Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great summer. I can feel the fall winds starting to make their approach and that means I should update you on Iwate JALT’s fall and winter schedule. Please stay tuned to our site for updates in the next few days. I will get things going with our meeting on September 28. We will be visited by Martin E. Pauly from the University of Tsukuba and he will be talking about getting hired at National University corporations.

Abstract: Hiring of faculty is carried out in different ways throughout Japan at national university corporations (formerly national universities).  And this varies even within individual institutions.  The presenter will focus on 2 such institutions, relating his experience as a part timer at one and a Gaikokujin Kyouin at another.  As his field of view is quite narrow (i.e., until 2 years ago, zero experience in private institutions) the presenter will offer the workshop section as a time for participants to compare and contrast points of the talk with their own experience.

国立大学法人の就職の実情

教員の雇用は日本中の国立大学法人(以前の国立大学)において異なる方法で行われている。個々の大学内においてさえも異なる。発表者は、非常勤講師、外国人教員としての自信の経験に関連させて、2つの大学に焦点を合わせるつもりである。市立大学での勤務経験がないため、彼の視野は非常に限られているので、参加者の話の内容を自分自身の経験と比較する時間としてワークショップセケションを設けるつもりである。

Bio: Martin E. Pauly was a professor (now Professor Emeritus) in the Research and Support Center on Higher Education for the Hearing and Visually Impaired, Tsukuba University of Technology.  He was a guide runner for blind athletes and faculty adviser of the Taichi Circle. He retired on March 31st, 2014.   He is presently teaching part time at the University of Tsukuba.

In this next few days, I will preview our October, December, January and February meetings as well. Also, don’t forget about the Nation JALT meeting Tsuka this year. Click on the logo on the right for more info.

I hope to see you all in September.
