Nara JALT hosted an excellent online event in April. Four educators kindly shared their successes and reflections they experienced when implementing either online tools or in-class activities in their teaching practices during academic year 2020. We would like to share these videos with you because they are all immensely helpful and still relevant.

This final event in the 2017 Nara JALT Program is dedicated to professional development, and particularly to the issue of diversity in our workplaces and communities. The recent implementation of the JALT Code of Conduct has highlighted the need for JALT to formalize the values that help to make it an inclusive and supportive professional network. As members of JALT, it is important we recognize and share those values, especially at times when they are challenged. Along with an overview of the Code of Conduct, this event features direct voices on the realities of harassment, and experienced views on how we can respond. The presentations will be followed by the annual Nara JALT End-of-Year Dinner Party.
