2015  Global-Themed Internships: Taking the Intercultural Learning Experience Out of the Classroom  共著   
Conference of the International Journal of Arts and Sciences  , International Journal of Arts & Sciences  , Vol. 8 (2)  , pp.35-41  , 2016/01/12   

概要(Abstract) This paper introduces the framework and rationale chosen by a Japanese university in its development of intercultural communication education curriculum. In particular, it focuses on efforts being made to provide students with more practical skill-learning opportunities outside of the classroom. It first outlines the current design and scheduled implementation of a proposed Global Domestic Internship (GDI) program. Following an overview of the suggested need for GDIs at Japanese universities, it discusses the creation of this university's particular program. This paper intends to not only provide a overview of the proposed program, but more importantly to help teachers and administrators enhance their programs by shedding light on the needs of students and participating internship organizations.

2015  Creating a Stepping Stone to Promote Student Motivation in Overseas Study Program Participation  共著   
The Bulletin of the Center for International Education  , Nanzan University  , 16  , pp.9-20  , 2016/01   

概要(Abstract) This paper has two main objectives. Firstly, it aims to outline the steps being undertaken by the International Education Center at Nanzan University to stimulate an increase in overseas study programs (OSPs) participation by Nanzan students. Secondly, it seeks to measure the level of motivation by students who recently participated in a newly-established OSP to New Zealand for four weeks. A pre-departure and exit survey were administered to the participating students. Results from the survey responses found that the students were highly self-motivated to participate in order not only to gain a higher level of English proficiency, but also to acquire intercultural awareness. In conclusion, the meanings of the results will be shared and suggestions will be made to further improve such programs.

2015  Navigating MOOCs: Students’ Perspectives  共著   
14th International Education Conference: Conference Proceedings  , HICE  , 2 pages online  , 2016/01   

概要(Abstract) Many university students in Japan are unaware of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and their potential for learning. This paper explicates two cohort’s exploration of MOOCs. Two group of students (n=22) taking a ‘Teaching with Technology’ course at Nanzan University were encouraged to explore online courses provided by platforms such as Coursera, edX, and FutureLearn, as part of a semester-long research project. The aim of the project was to broaden the students’ knowledge of this growing field and they were given free rein to navigate the MOOC terrain in any way they wished. Throughout the project each student kept a diary in which they logged both their MOOC use, and their opinions of the courses. Interviews, diaries, focus groups, reports, and questionnaires all provided rich data. The authors outline the design of the project, before discussing in detail the students’ experiences of mapping the MOOC terrain.

2014  Enhancing Intercultural Competence Through Overseas Study Programs  共著   
Hawaii International Conference on Education 2015 Conference Proceedings  , Hawaii International Conference on Education  , 2015/1/4   

概要(Abstract) This paper explicates how a Japanese university is working to enhance and expand its Overseas Study Programs (OSPs). As Twonbly et al. (2012) claim, OSPs should provide students with more opportunities to enhance their foreign language ability and intercultural competence. This is pertinent to Japan as it seeks to nurture students with these skills for active use in the ever-expanding global society. In this paper, an outline of the design, implementation, and evaluation of OSPs at Japanese universities, including Nanzan University is provided, with a particular focus on its Nanzan Asia Program (NAP). Following this, it moves on to discuss the development of other OSPs currently being created. Finally, it offers suggestions to help teachers and administrators enhance their own program development by providing examples of the areas in which Nanzan University pursues further improvements.

2014  Intercultural Communication Education at Tertiary Level in Japan: Past, Present and Future  単著   
アカデミア 文学•語学編  , 南山大学  , 97  , 2015/01   

概要(Abstract) This paper examines intercultural communication education at tertiary-level in Japan through a discussion of its development from the past to present. It begins with a review of the current literature on intercultural communication education in Japan before describing the present-day curricula to be found in Japanese universities. A description of faculties in Japanese universities that provide dedicated intercultural communication and intercultural-studies programs is presented. Additionally, an introduction of other Japanese universities that take a dynamic view of culture within their EAP/ESP courses is given. The successes gained from such development as well as the gaps that still remain are then discussed. Finally, future possibilities of further enhancement of education in this field at Japanese universities are presented as a conclusion.

2014  University Curriculum Globalisation: Developing Intercultural Business Communication and Understanding Courses at a Japanese University  単著   
The CLaSIC 2014 Conference Proceedings  , The CLaSIC 2014 Organising Committee  , 2014/12/03   

概要(Abstract) Japan continues to experience an increase in the presence of multinational, foreign affiliate and major Japanese companies in which globalisation means working in culturally-diverse work environments. Naturally, Japanese university students seeking employment in this type of work environment need to be prepared for the linguistic and cultural challenges that await. Currently, there is an ocean of material from ESP textbooks available that answers the need to some extent. However, can such sources provide knowledge of specific situations? Would the introduction of ‘real life’ situations (observations and audio-video interviews) with a focus on workplace communication strategies help them more? This paper introduces a challenging research project that has been developed to further contribute with such material. It begins with an outline of where the project is situated within the realm of intercultural communication education necessity. It then discusses the significance of such a project and how it is being developed with the aim of producing material for the classroom as well as online. It concludes with a summary of the challenging nature of the project and how it may contribute to further enhancing intercultural business communication studies at tertiary level in Japan.

2013  Enhancing Cultural Intelligence through International Course Category Classes: A Content-Based Approach.  単著   
The Bulletin of the Center for International Education  , Nanzan University  , Vol. 14  , pp. 1-9  , 2014.01   

概要(Abstract) This paper examines two classes within the International Category Course (国際科目群)curriculum at Nanzan University. Specifically, it investigates the degree to which content-based instruction in English facilitates the acquisition and enhancement of cultural intelligence among students enrolled in both classes. Evaluation results obtained through student surveys are analyzed to shed light on the connection between student motivation and cultural intelligence acquisition and enhancement. As a conclusion, suggestions and implications for further investigation in similar contexts are discussed.

2011  PhD Thesis: STRATEGIES OF COMMUNICATION: Intercultural Workplace Communication between an Australian Expatriate and Japanese Co-Workers in Japan  単著   
University of Queensland  , 275  , 2011/12   

概要(Abstract) Located within the specific context of Australian-Japanese workplace communication, this research attempts to craft a richer description and deeper understanding of intercultural communication than that elaborated in expatriate-local staff literature and intercultural communication discourse.
Through an in-depth qualitative analysis of a single workplace, this research explores the use and interaction of high second language (L2) (Japanese) competency and cultural intelligence by an Australian expatriate when communicating with his Japanese co-workers with a particular focus on the communication accommodation strategies used by him.
The findings presented in this thesis illustrate the connection of language competency and cultural intelligence to demonstrate that effective communication in intercultural workplaces requires more than fluency in a language.
