2023  The Sandwich Production Method: Shifting the Paradigm from Passive to Productive  共著   
OnCUE Journal  , College and University Educators Special Interest Group affiliated with the Japan Association of Language teaching (JALT)  , 15/1  , 69-82  , 2024/01/15   

概要(Abstract) T his article highlights the benefits of a “Sandwich Production Method”, a production oriented approach to English instruction at the tertiary level. It is designed to address some of the long-standing issues that have been recognized in the Japanese EFL context, such as the lack of a holistic approach to English teaching and learning, especially insufficient output
opportunities, and students’ passive learning style. It discusses the theoretical foundations of the method and describes its practical aspects, which will be followed by an example task. The benefits of implementing this method in the classroom are presented based on class
observations, which suggest a positive effect on cognitive engagement of the part of the learners. While this method is, for now, intended for university classes, it is hoped to reach wider EFL contexts in Japan.

2023  Re-ordering of the English Production Process  共同  2023/02/18 
Sojo University Teaching and Learning Forum 2023 (SUTLF 2023)  , Sojo International Learning Center / Nankyu JALT   

概要(Abstract) This poster presents a production-oriented approach to university EFL instruction by employing a “sandwich method” inspired by Keller's ARCS model and task-based language teaching (TBLT) principles. The method involves initial content production, review, exposure to authentic examples and content reproduction. The poster will explain the method, its importance, implementation, and associated theories. Data gathered from student responses, class observations, open-ended surveys and university administered class evaluations report positive student perceptions of social skills building, personal development and future usefulness, in addition to increased or improved language learning. Example tasks, benefits and possible improvements will also be presented.

2021  Investigating Academic Engagement Through Digital Tools Integration  単独  2021/11/14 
JALT2021: Reflections and New Perspectives  , JALT   

概要(Abstract) A case study exploring Japanese university students’ reluctance to adopt technology for learning was conducted integrating technology into an academic English course. Qualitative data explored student experiences and changes in perceptions about using technology using factors from the technology acceptance model (TAM). Two major factors influenced perception with a uniquely Japanese socio-cultural factor emerging as a possible barrier to technology interaction. A model for integrating technology to increase academic engagement will be presented.

2021  Why Japanese university students are not using technology for language learning: A qualitative study  単独  2021/06/06 
JALTCALL 2021  , JALTCALL   

概要(Abstract) At a glance, Japanese university students are adept at using technology--and they are in terms of entertainment. Using digital technology to assist their language learning seems to be something they avoided, or are not interested in. A case study to explore why Japanese 1st year university students were not using technology for learning, and their experiences and perceptions when introduced to digital tools (readily accessible software, online resources and functions of computers and smartphones), was conducted in an academic English course at a women’s university in Kyushu. Digital tools were integrated into the regular coursework with tasks requiring their use over one term (N=72). Tasks ranged from infographics to animated video presentations. An open-ended survey (Reflective Activity) and interviews explored student experiences and changes in perceptions while prior to the course, students completed a survey reporting on their high school technology experience. The qualitative data were analysed using the factors from the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and its educational revisions as an analytical framework. Most students were receptive to using technology for language learning with the data suggesting lack of awareness as the main reason for poor digital literacy and lack of productive interaction. Two major factors influencing student perceptions, and an unexpected uniquely Japanese socio-cultural factor, arose as possible barriers to technology adoption. These factors will be presented and discussed, as well as introducing a model for overcoming these challenges through the integration of technology into any type of course (Technology Integration Model for Japanese Learners).

2022  第 45 回「南山大学英語教員セミナー」  2022/08/01~2022/08/02 

活動内容等(Content of Activities) Digital technologies are unarguably a part of our 21st century existence. This presentation will discuss how technology and the English Internet can be exploited to improve both the learning experience though both practical and theoretical viewpoints. This talk will cover topics that should be of interest to both tech novices to advanced users. 

2022  第 45 回「南山大学英語教員セミナー」  2022/08/01~2022/08/02 

活動内容等(Content of Activities) Production is an often-overlooked part of English classes. This talk will discuss how integrating small meaningful productive tasks can improve students understanding of English by taking some of the emphasis off teaching and placing it on discovery and collaboration. Simple collaborative tasks can supplement any existing curriculum and improve student engagement and comprehension.
