Conference: The 12th Annual JALT Pan-SIG Conference (PanSIG 2013): For many, one: Collaboration, cooperation, and community (2013: Nanzan University, Nagoya, Japan)
This presentation will detail a programme designed to deliver field-based mode of training for language teachers in special schools and set up a school cluster system for teachers to have a platform for the interactive exchange of ideas, resources, services, and expertise. During the training period, lectures, demonstration observations and cross-site visitations were held. Members in the school cluster included a university educator, two specialist professionals of the supporting school and 10 teachers of participating schools. With the positive response of the participants, we feel that the programme presents a possible model for training and intervention.
