Articulation Workshop: Changes in Teachers, Classes and Students
「教師が変わる、授業が変わる、学生が変わる」アーティキュレーション ワークショップ

As many Japanese programs face challenges, we need to work together to promote Japanese language education in Ohio. Please join us for a day of articulation workshop to learn what “articulation” is and how it will help our teaching, curriculum design, and advocacy/outreach. There will also be time for networking with the Japanese language program educators (K-16) in Ohio and beyond.

Facilitator:Prof. Mieko Kawai (Dept of East Asian Languages, Literatures, and Culture, University of Virginia)
