This past Sunday Iwate JALT was in Aomori City at the Aomori University of Health and Welfare for our annual TILES(Tsugaru Ideas in Language Education Symposium) event. This year the conference was organized by the university’s own Mike Smith. There was a panel discussion on various educational topics and we were very happy to have Edo Forsythe, Megumi Ono Tada, Maria Reyes and Steven MacWhinnie there to offer up their points of view. After the panel discussion, Yukako Kimura from St.Ursula Gakurn Eichi ES&JHS gave a spirited presentation on creating workshops with young learners. Below are some photos from the event. I hope to see you all at TILES next year.
