I am an Assistant Professor at Nihon University College of International Relations. I earned my MA TESOL from Teachers College, Columbia University. My research interests include reflective practice, curriculum development, and language learning psychology. I am the plenary liaison for JALT2021 and you'll probably find me helping the plenary speakers and attending as many events as I can while also spending time with my little girl throughout the weekend.

Teacher and Professional Development Reflective Practice to Understand Your Teaching and Yourself more

Fri, Nov 12, 18:45-19:55 Asia/Tokyo

This workshop will provide participants with opportunities to engage in reflective practice (RP) to better understand their teaching and themselves. The presenters will explain definitions of RP, highlight Farrell’s six principles of RP (2019), and introduce tools for engaging in RP. Participants will be encouraged to try some tools and share about their respective situations. It is hoped that participants will be motivated to engage in such practices when they return to their own contexts.
