Looking for some professional development that will transform your science teaching? The ASTA Science Teachers Exchange to Japan might be for you.
In October 2016 ASTA will be taking a delegation of passionate science teachers to Japan. The delegation will depart Sydney on Saturday 1 October and return to Sydney on Sunday 9 October 2016.
ASTA is offering four science teachers (primary or secondary) the opportunity to be a part of this delegation. Delegates will have the opportunity to observe Japanese primary and secondary science classes and lead classes of their own (with an interpreter) as a guest teacher. Delegates will also take part in forums with Japanese teachers to exchange ideas and practices and discuss the differences and similarities between Japanese and Australian science education. In 2016, delegates will also facilitate a teacher workshop on science inquiry.
