**CANCELLED due to rain** Peer-, Near-Peer-, and Community-Mentoring Hanami party at Osaka Mint Bureau

Saturday, 15 April 2017 - 1:00pm - 5:30pm

Unfortunately, with more rain in the weather forecast, we have decided to cancel this event. We expect to have more opportunities for peer-, near-peer-, and community-mentoring at future events, so please plan to join us another time!

The weather forecast has led us to postpone this event to Saturday, April 15, and to move it to near the Osaka Mint Bureau. Further details of where to meet will be posted closer to the 15th, but here's the main idea:

The hanami season is the perfect time to get together under the cherry blossoms to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and share ideas (and libations) as we begin the new school year. Share ideas and suggestions with Osaka JALT officers and other members and non-members, network with other teachers and students, discuss teaching and learning (or whatever you like), or just kick back and relax with us in this very informal and rather autonomous exercise in peer-, near-peer, and community-mentoring!

Family, friends, and newcomers are all very welcome.

Bring refreshments for yourself and possibly something to share, and a plastic sheet or something to sit on.

Please be sure to check for updates and further details closer to the 15th.

Location:
Osaka Mint Bureau, near Temmabashi station

Fee: Free (bring your own food and beverages)

Textbook evaluation survey

f you are a full-time or part-time university teacher who chooses your own textbook(s), participate in our 10- minute survey & you’ll get a JPY500 Amazon coupon!

Our kaken research group is conducting a survey and your input would be appreciated.

The purpose of this research is to assess EFL textbooks in Japan. We hope that the data we collect can provide insights to educators, curriculum planners and school administrators on how to comprehensively assess EFL textbooks. This is an anonymous survey, so your personal information will not be identified, presented, or published. All answers to this survey will be used for research purposes only. If, for any reason, you cannot answer any question, please just leave it blank. 

Before you begin the survey, think of one textbook that you are currently using and base all of your answers to the questions on pages 2 and 3 on that textbook.

There are a total of 37 questions. It should take you less than 10 minutes to complete the entire survey. After you complete the survey, we will send you a link to a JPY500 Amazon coupon in January. The data will be used for a research project and the coupons are limited to the first 150 participants.

Click on this link to begin: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/F6D36Y3. If you know of any other teachers who choose their own textbook(s) and would like to participate in this survey, please send them this web link so they can take our survey as well.

Thank you very much for your time and cooperation.
