The College of Education at UH Mānoa, as a member of the Japan-US Teacher Education Consortium (JUSTEC), hosted the 29th Annual JUSTEC conference recently from September 14 to 17, 2017. The conference focused on professional development as a theme, and began with an optional school visit to three p4cHI (Philosophy for Children - Hawai‘i) schools, made possible through the College's working relationship with the Uehiro Academy for Philosophy and Ethics in Education, home of p4cHI. The conference then officially opened on September 15, with a keynote by Dr. Tom Jackson, fondly known as "Dr. J", Director of the academy, followed by two and half days of exciting knowledge-sharing and connections.
