Significance and Strategies for International Dissemination of Outputs of Early Career Researchers
The primary aim of this symposium was to provide a forum for demonstrating ways of internationalizing Japanese special education research. Firstly, three Japanese early career researchers (ECRs) gave model presentations in English, followed by discussion of points to consider when presenting in international forum. Suggestions from the three ECRs were presented regarding the goal of the presentation, dealing with the audience, and preparation for Question and Answer sessions. Secondly, Dr. Paul Lynch presented the procedure for writing and submitting English language papers, while Professor Divya Jindal-Snape presented practical aspects of internationalization of Japanese special education research. Finally, Dr. Yoshiko Toriyama concluded that, in order to establish themselves internationally, ECRs need to be mindful of the international perspective. This symposium needs to be held periodically to help ECRs develop positive attitudes and strategies towards disseminating their outputs internationally.
