The Australian Science Teachers Association is delighted to announce that it was one of 48 beneficiaries of grants funded by the Australian Japan Foundation. The money will be used to support a small delegation of Australian teachers to travel to Japan to experience the culture, traditions and diversity within teaching practice between the two countries.
Known as the ASTA Science Teachers Exchange, this experience has been transformational for many of the participating teachers with the exchange bridging the cultural divide and helping teachers to grow in confidence and teaching efficacy.
The 2016 ASTA- Japan Science Teachers Exchange is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The trip will commence on 1 October and teachers will be blogging about their experience at http://asta-japan.blogspot.com.au/
