My name is Linfeng Wang, and I am currently working for an M.Ed. program at the Graduate School of Professional Development of Teachers at the University of Fukui. The M.Ed. program is a school-based teacher education program for the professional development of both pre-service and in-service teachers. As a teacher educator, I have been supporting K-12 teachers at different stages of their careers in Japanese public schools since 2017. Given my background as a language teacher, my research interests also include foreign language materials development, and classroom teaching and learning.
Armando Duarte worked as a dispatch ALT in junior and senior high schools from 2011 until 2017, when he began working at the university level. At the time of writing, he is employed by Kwansei Gakuin University. His research interests include CALL (computer-aided language learning), learner motivation, and a little bit of everything. When he is not teaching, he enjoys looking over his balcony to the mountains and making occasional trips to Costco.
Nate Olson, a former ALT and current researcher at Sophia University, is promoting team-taught CLIL (content and language integrated learning) for his Ph.D. project. He has created a team-taught CLIL training course video series which will be featured on ALTTO Courses.
He invites you to participate in a pilot study where he will be a consultant on your team-taught CLIL projects, helping you and your co-teacher to implement CLIL into your team-taught lessons.
Please see his TTCLIL project video series for more information about CLIL and examples of team-taught CLIL in action.
