研究内容 ;Contents of Study

 

Teacher Development: I am interested in teacher research frameworks that enable teachers to research their own classrooms. In my supervisions of postgraduate theses, Action Research is often used as a suggested methodological framework: additionally postgraduate research students have used a lesser internationally known model referred to as  Lesson Study (Jugyo Kenkyu), a powerfully effective, collaborative teacher research model that originated in Japan. I am presently involved in a Lesson Study project with English teachers at a local high school in Kumamoto Japan. My coursework includes English Education, focusing on public speaking, communication, debate and academic writing; Intercultural Communication, focusing on stereotypes, and development of multicultural understanding through the 3rd place-- a place that emphasizes avoidance of single reality perspectives stemming from ethnocentrism and an overreliance on subjectivity and sympathy toward developing multiple realities empowered by empathy and objectivity; and Media Studies, to develop critical awareness of how media impacts on our thoughts and behavior, and how it can shape public opinion (Walter Lippmann) by media message manipulation (engineering of consent) through the art of public relations (Edward Bernays).
