The Japan Foundation, Toronto and the University of British Columbia are co-hosting a workshop for Japanese language teachers on the topic of on how to carry out and evaluate project work in an upper-beginner language class.

Theme: Project Work in Upper-Beginner Classes

When do you actually use the Japanese that you learn in the classroom? It’s often said when studying Japanese overseas, even after beginners have acquired enough sentence patterns, vocabulary, etc. it’s difficult to find places to actually use the language. In the age of internet technology, it is possible for students to use things like Skype and Social Networking Services (SNS) to try and “access” Japanese on their own. However, from the viewpoint of the whole class, how many of the students are actually “accessing Japanese” in that way? In this workshop, we will consider opportunities to use Japanese within classroom activities, focusing on project work in particular. In project work, students can use Japanese as one “tool,” both in and out of the classroom, and working with other learners can bring their own ideas and opinions together. During the workshop, participants are invited to share their own specific experiences with project work. We will also consider together the significance of project work and how to evaluate it, etc.

Instructor:  Mami Saito, Japanese-Language Education Advisor, Alberta Education (sponsored by the Japan Foundation)
