On JALT 95: Curriculum and Evaluation. Proceedings of the JALT International Conference on Language Teaching/Learning (22nd, Nagoya, Japan, November 1995). Section One: Looking Back, Looking Forward.
Wright, Andrew; And Others
Three papers on the outlook for second language teaching and learning introduce the conference on second language curriculum and evaluation. "My Story of Language Teaching" (Andrew Wright) describes a variety of personal and professional experiences in the course of 50 years of language teaching, each highlighting emerging social values and their effects on language teaching ideas and materials. "Change in Education: Historical and Social Perspectives" (Thomas L. Simmons, Dawn Yonally, Shiozawa Tadashi) reviews change initiatives in Japanese education, examines factors associated with successful change, and makes recommendations for promoting professionalism in teaching in that context. In "Training and Development: Possible Pathways Forward," colloquium participants summarize their papers on "The Training-Development Interface" (Clive Lovelock), "Teacher Research and Learner Linguistic Needs" (Kevin Mark), "Curriculum Renewal and Teacher Development" (Junko Okada), and "Teacher Training: Initiation to Development" (Jan Visscher). Individual papers contain references. (MSE)
