JOINT (Japanese Online Instruction Network for Teachers) Webinars for Teachers of Japanese

Outline of  the JOINT Webinars

A "webinar" is a web-based seminar/presentation/lecture/workshop which the audience can take online. The JOINT webinar series aims to provide professionals with opportunities to gain/increase/update their knowledge of Japanese language education without traveling, through online presentations led by experts.


JOINT webinars typically last 1.5 hours. Webinars will be delivered by experts in Japanese language education and facilitated by experts in online instruction and technologies. Question-and-answer sessions will be included in the middle and again at the end of each webinar, allowing some interaction between the audience and the presenter. Participants can also continue a follow-up discussion after each webinar to exchange opinions and ideas on the content covered by the webinar. All webinars can be taken either live or/and on-demand. Each webinar will be viewable for one month so that participants can access it even after the live webinar is completed. Certificates of webinar completion will be provided by the American Association of Teachers of Japanese (AATJ) on request; these can be used to request CEU credit from the participant's institution or school district.
