About JUSTEC: The Japan-U.S. Teacher Education Consortium (JUSTEC) was established in the late 1980s by several deans of education at universities in the United States and in Japan in the interest of fostering joint research efforts into teacher education issues of mutual interest in both countries. The organization was established under the aegis of AACTE (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education) and, though it has evolved from being dean-centered to being faculty/researcher-centered over the years, JUSTEC has continued to hold annual conferences of teacher education professionals in alternate locations in the U.S. and Japan.

The objectives of JUSTEC are:

  • To provide opportunities for colleges and graduate schools of education to examine their study and practice.
  • As an incubator for new ideas, to provide opportunities to give presentations and to engage in discussion and cultural exchange for scholars, graduate students, in-service teachers, policy makers and others who are involved in education.
  • To facilitate joint study and collaborative projects between US and Japanese scholars/educators and to support scholars’ and practitioners’ efforts towards better education.
  • To enhance academic networks between Japan and US scholars, educators, and practitioners.
Location Naruto University of Education, Tokushima, Japan
