Second Annual Performance in Education SIG in Sapporo Conference

February 1-2, 2020

THEME "Getting Creative: Avenues to Successful Practices in EFL"

This year the PIE SIG will join with JALT Hokkaido Chapter, Brain SIG, and Critical Thinking SIG. Our conference will be embedded in the Hokkaido Chapter's 2020 JALT Hokkaido Winter Language Teaching Conference at Hokusei Gakuin University in Sapporo, where we will have a room in which we can create our own conference. The conference will occur just before the famous Sapporo Snow Festival, but you will be able to see the preparations for the festival and enjoy Snow Festival activities at the Tsudome site. Come and join us!
