自己紹介

After graduating from the University of Alberta with a degree in Secondary Education, I went backpacking through Fiji, New Zealand, Australia and Hawaii and eventually made my way to Japan where I found a new passion for international education. This fresh enthusiasm led me to pursue a Master of Arts degree in TESL/TEFL with a dissertation focus on study abroad preparation.
Throughout my time in Japan, my experiences as an educator and as a learner of Japanese language and culture have enabled me to see international education from different perspectives. Through these perspectives, I have gained a deeper understanding of the needs of students as well as valuable knowledge to analyze my own individual culture and my approach to teaching and learning. I am proud to share my experiences with my students and forever curious to discover what the world has to offer.

ゼミ紹介

The goal of this seminar is to significantly contribute to the development of students' 21st century skills through a variety of active learning opportunities in English.
In the first semester of their 3rd year, students will participate in a simulation of the United Nations. This cooperative, hands-on learning experience will allow students to confront a global issue in English from the perspective of their assigned country. Through this experience, students will appreciate different viewpoints, recognize the frustration of negotiation, cherish the rewards of cooperation, and develop a broader view of the human side of international relations and diplomacy.
In the second semester of their 3rd year, students will join eighty other university students from around Japan at the annual Asia Community Engagement conference. At this conference, students will work together in English to solve a variety of corporate problems introduced by some of Japan’s leading companies.
In their 4th year, teams of seminar students will report on the sweet spots of various communities and topics throughout Japan. This collaborative community journalism activity will help students learn more about the rich culture of local communities while getting hands-on experience with modern technology and the English language. All of the digital media that students produce will be used as part of their English graduation project.
