The Teaching Skills Development Seminar (TSDS) is an annual gathering of ALTs, JTEs, and teaching consultants in Toyama hosted by the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR), and the Toyama Prefectural Board of Education. It serves as a platform for sharing best teaching practices and cultural exchange methods among English educators in Toyama. Workshops are led by the ALTs for their co-ALTs, incoming ALTs, and for JTEs.

The topics for these workshops were, but not limited to, classroom management, motivation techinques, cross-cultural activities, the Japanese language, cultural awareness, adapting to various learning styles, and much more!

Thank you everyone for your hard work and creativity in making TSDS an amazing experience for your fellow English teachers!
