Welcome to the Queensland Japanese School Teacher Enhancement Forum Website.

Since its establishment in 2021, this annual workshop has served as a source of inspiration for Japanese language educators throughout Queensland. Our objective is to create a supportive environment where teachers can refine their pedagogical skills through hands-on activities inspired by university coursework, while also fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment within a supportive community.

As we embark on this collaborative journey, this website functions as a virtual focal point, facilitating connections among teachers, sharing diverse experiences, and constructing a robust network that transcends geographical barriers. In addition to the annual in-person workshop, we encourage you to utilize this platform for continuous professional development, offering regular opportunities such as monthly study groups.

Here, educators engage in dynamic discussions on various topics of interest and equip themselves with innovative pedagogical methodologies, ensuring the ongoing enhancement of Japanese language education. We invite you to join us in this enriching endeavor as we learn, connect, and grow together!
