Tokyo Get-togethers

Next Get-together

Building 6, Room 6305*

*Please note the venue change to: Building 6, Room 6305.

Sharing and discussing learner development interests in a relaxed and collaborative environment

At the October get-together we will be continuing to discuss participants’ learner development interests and members’ presentations at JALT2017. This is a good opportunity to discuss your current learner development puzzles, and any research projects you are working on, plus get some final feedback on your JALT2017 presentations.

The get-togethers aim to provide a flexible, supportive, and convivial environment for exploring learner development according to people’s particular interests and concerns. Click here to read get-together reports from previous get-togethers in 2017. For the historical archive of get-together reports from March 2011 to December 2016, please go here.

We welcome the participation of teachers from diverse teaching contexts – including elementary school, junior high school, senior high school, university, distance learning & graduate studies, and language school settings – and teachers teaching languages other than English.


You are very welcome to come along and join in – and to invite a colleague or friend too if they share an interest in learning about learner development together with other teachers and graduate students. For more information, feel free to contact us at <ldsigtokyogettogethers AT MARK gmail DOT com>.

We have decided to put Creating Community: Learning Together 4 (CCLT4) on hold and open a discussion among LD members in the greater Tokyo area about whether to continue the get-togethers in 2018 or not (and if so, how and when). Please feel free to share your views with us in person at the October get-together, at JALT2017,  or by email at <>. Many thanks in advance! Short reports on the September, June, May, April, February, and January get-togethers can be found here.

Best wishes
