Changing landscape, changing roles: JSL teachers in Japan

This is a symposium I moderated at the second National Conference on Foreign Language Teacher Education and Development held at Beijing Normal University in September 2007. Following are the panelists' handouts in Chinese for download. Some of them are not exactly narrative research. (Zhou Ping, Fan Yumei, Nakai Yoshio, Nishida Tomomi, and Li Xiaobo).
