Part-time lecturer

My primary research interests are in the area of motivation. So far, I have developed long-term learning support environment for learners of Japanese: open educational resources navigation support system, pseudo-conversational practice tool, self-reflection support tool, and so on. I have experience of: 1) teaching Japanese classes using ICT, 2) operating facilities like ”Center for Japanese Learning Resources” and ”Writing Support Center”, and 3) developing online resources like learning materials, dictionaries, data-bases, e-tests, etc…My goal is to find the way of learning that is appealing and engaging.
