Creating Community: Learning Together (CCLT) is the name for an informal afternoon conference taking place each December in Tokyo. The event is the final Tokyo get-together of the year where both teachers and their students take part.
CCLT3 took place in December 2016. Thirty-four students and 30 teachers attended, and by all accounts everybody had a very enjoyable afternoon – inspiring presentations and convivial discussions, with many different LD members leading the reflection circles after each of the three rounds of presentations.
A warm thank you to everyone who attended, who helped students take part, and who invited friends and colleagues to come along and join in, and who created together a really supportive, warm atmosphere!
Thank you too to Mao Kaise, Momoko Nagae, and Aoi Takahashi for doing a superb job as conference volunteers and to Huw and Sami for running the registration desk in such a welcoming and genki fashion.
A special thank you to Otsuma Women’s University for hosting CCLT3, and to Ken for making all the arrangements for LD to use Otsuma Womens’ University for CCLT3 – and for organising the bonenkai afterwards in the Indian restaurant. Thank you one and all!
We will be starting to discuss possibilities and plans for CCLT4 in December 2017 from April onwards. Please share your ideas, hopes, and dreams!
