2015  Connecting Culture and Language: An Analysis of the Future of Intercultural Education in Japanese High School English Language Education.  単著   
AGON Special Edition Journal March 2016  , AGON  , Special Edition  , pp. 67-92  , 2017/03   

概要(Abstract) English education has long been firmly embedded within the Japanese high school curriculum. However, behind every foreign language learning experience lies the deep phenomena of culture. Nevertheless, research into the need for intercultural education within the current English education at Japanese high schools is still sporadic. Accordingly, this paper begins with an examination of the current state of intercultural education in this context, including an investigation into the Japanese teachers of English and native English teacher intercultural dynamic. After providing a canvas of the current situation, this paper will then provide an outline of the current research project that aims at providing pedagogical support through teacher training.

Specifically, the author aims to show how Japanese teachers of English will be provided opportunities to enhance their level of intercultural communication competence and understanding for use in English class content as well as interpersonal relations with native English teachers.

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  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.

2011  Exploring Returnee Linguistic and Cutlural Indentity: A Study of 3rd Year High School Students in Japan  単著   
ACADEMIA: Literature and Language  , Nanzan University  , 90  , 20 pages  , 2011/06   

概要(Abstract) The returnee experience is often framed by an underlying tone of struggle or confusion; however, this does not have to be the case. This study describes how the construct of bilingualism and bicultural identity has been positively explored and interpreted by three groups of 3rd year returnee high school students in 2008, 2009 and 2010 respectively.
Using a qualitative approach, this study surveyed and interviewed a total of 75 students taking an elective content and skills-based ESL class in the Faculty of Policy Studies, Nanzan University.
Thematic analysis of the data shows that when students are stimulated by content that challenges their bilingual and bicultural abilities, it in fact motivates them to reflect on their identities in a positive way as conveyed in their participant voices presented in this study. As a conclusion, suggestions and implications for further investigation in similar contexts are discussed.

2010  Exploring the Links between English Teacher Collaboration and Motivation  単著   
ACADEMIA: Literature and Language  , Nanzan University  , 88  , 20 pages  , 2010/06   

概要(Abstract) This paper investigates the links between English teacher collaboration and motivation in a specific context-the first year English Communication program in the Faculty of Policy Studies, Nanzan University. Since the 1990s, teacher motivation and collaboration, as well as professional development, have received an increasing amount of attention in the current literature (e.g. Dornyei & Murphey, 2003; Ellis, 1994; Igawa, 2008; Shannon & Meath-Lang, 1992; Sturman, 1992). However, as Cowie (2006) points out, the emotional element of teaching is still relatively untouched in terms of exploratory research. In order to shed light in this area, the present study sets forth to gain insights into the ways and reasons English teachers feel motivated through collaboration with colleagues. Using a questionnaire and semi-structured interview approach, this paper discuss the issue of teacher motivation and collaboration through the eyes of its participants and the implications for future development of collaborative efforts to further enhance teacher motivation in an EFL university context.

2008  通訳•翻訳訓練法をとりいれた授業と学生モチベーション  単著   
JACET中部支部紀要  , 大学英語教育学会中部支部  , 第6号  , 10  , 2008/12   

概要(Abstract) This paper examines the practicality of a two-semester elective general education English course taught to third and fourth year students in the Faculty of Policy Studies at Nanzan University. The two-semester course focuses on practical Japanese-English interpreting and translating skills for the workplace. Guided by ESP theory and its characteristics, the aim of analyzing these courses is to determine the practicality of the applicable skills taught during the two semesters. Using an open-ended survey and semi-structured interview methodology, students taking the course were asked to reflect on issues of study motivation and the practicality of the skills they learnt. A qualitative analysis of the responses is discussed and aims to show how a focus on practical skills acquisition can indeed contribute to high levels of study motivation and a sense of practicality among students.

2006  Making it work: a study of Australian expatriate language and cultural strategies for the workplace in Japan.  単著   
New Voices  , Japan Foundation  , Inaugural Issue  , 12  , 2006/11   

概要(Abstract) Japanese language and Japan-related studies have been popular in Australia for over 20 years. According to the Japan Foundation (2004), Japanese language learners in Australia were estimated to number at around 380,000 in 2003, an 80,000 increase on the numbers recorded in 1998. Additionally, other research shows that Japanese is regarded as one of the top four Asian languages to be taught in Australia’s LOTE (Languages Other Than English) education, with the motivation to learn Japanese at tertiary level linked to the view of career prospect enhancement. However, this type of research outwardly fell short in identifying the effectiveness of having Japanese proficiency, and more importantly, its role in enhancing cultural competence (i.e. the ability to function effectively in a host culture) in business communication. Indeed, some intercultural communication researchers (e.g. Du-Babcock & Babcock 1996, Selmer 2006) argue that the level of second-language proficiency among expatriates is a determining factor in achieving effective intercultural workplace communication. While this notion may seem obvious, there are few pieces of empirical evidence that show how Australians with second-language and cultural competence achieve effective business communication. It focuses on a description of findings from my previous (MA) and present research (PhD), specifically investigating the effectiveness of Australian expatriates with high Japanese proficiency and cultural competence.

2006  The Impact and Role of High Language Competency and Cultural Intelligence on Workplace Communication: A Qualitative Analysis of Australian Expatriates in Japan.  単著   
Japan Journal of Multilingualism and Multiculturalism  , JALTバイリンガリズム研究部会出版  , 12/1  , 28  , 2006/10   

概要(Abstract) Given the close business ties between Australia and Japan and the continuing increase in the number of Australians working in this country, communication between these expatriates (AEWs) and their Japanese coworkers is receiving more attention because of its impact on business efficiency. This study, which represents the first stage of the author’s Ph.D. research project, explores the relationship between Japanese language proficiency and cultural intelligence through a survey of twelve AEWs and 48 of their coworkers (four for each AEW) in three business organizations in Japan. Although the AEW participants were chosen because of their strong Japanese skills, this paper analyzes differences between those evaluated by themselves and their coworkers as having advanced Japanese proficiency and those who possess only conversation-level Japanese. It considers the AEWs’ use of Japanese in the workplace and their strategies for resolving breakdowns in communication between them and their

2006  Reading between the Lines: A Father's Perspective on Raising a Bicultural, Autistic Child in Japan.  単著   
Bilingual Japan  , B-SIG JALT  , 15/3  , 4  , 2006/09   

概要(Abstract) This article starts by giving a brief overview to define autism, biculturalism and intercultural communication. Based on this framework, I use elements of high context/low context from within the theory of intercultural communication as the main framework to make comparisons and draw similarities in the challenges faced by my autistic son and myself in Japan. The article represents two main personal aims for myself. First, I am trying to offer a new interpretation for behavioral perspectives and analysis―that is, autism as an intercultural situation filled with intercultural challenges. Second, I then illustrate, through episodes with my son, how those challenges can be overcome by applying intercultural communication strategies that hopefully lead to an enhanced level of cultural intelligence for the autistic person.

2001  MA DISSERTATION: Intercultural Communication Competence: A Study of the Current Status of Language and Business Cultural Competence of Australian and New Zealand Expatriates in Japan.  単著   
University of Sheffield  , 100  , 2001/01   

概要(Abstract) This dissertation was submitted to the School of East Asian Studies, Sheffield University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Masters in Advanced Japanese Studies in April 2001. The main objective of this research was to explore the reasons behind the high rate of linguistically and culturally Japanese-competent expatriates from Australia and New Zealand based in Japan. Using a mixed-method approach (questionnaire and focus-interview), expatriates were first asked to evaluate their competence by way of a survey. In order to accurately analyze the current competence levels, the participating expatriates were asked to explain how communication style differences caused breakdowns and how they used their Japanese language and cultural competence to achieve successful business communication with Japanese staff and clients. As a result, two in-depth case studies (one Australian expatriates and one New Zealand expatriate) were presented to illustrate common findings from the data analysis of the entire participant population.
