  • Reading the TIME Articles under the COVID-19 Pandemic -An Attempt of the First Online Teaching-

    TOYA, Mitsuyo

    Language Learning and Educational Linguistics 2021-2022   2021   29 - 46   2022.03 [ Peer Review Accepted ]

    Type of publication: Research paper (scientific journal)

     View Summary

    This paper aims at reporting the author's first attempt of teaching an online course for Japanese college learners of English. The class objective was to enhance their English communication skills in the four areas, i.e., listening, speaking, reading, and writing using the real-time TIME online articles. Although the syllabus had been determined based on the national teaching licensing curriculum in 2017, the first implementation in Spring 2020 fell into the forced online teaching due to the coronavirus pandemic. The class utilized multiple online platforms such as Webclass, Google Forms, Flipgrid, Teams, MS Stream with the course designed as close as possible to the original face-to-face classroom. The author reflects and examines this online teaching and reports the advantages of authentic materials in the classroom during the COVID-19 pandemic.

     View Summary

    This report is based on a presentation at IVEC 2021 about two ninety-minute collaborative online international learning (COIL) exchanges between (1) the University of the Ryukyus in Japan and Universiti Malaysia Pahang and (2) the University of the Ryukyus in Japan and Asian-Pacific COIL partner institutions, notably the University of Hawaii. Such initiatives cannot be accomplished without the efforts of numerous parties: students especially, but also faculty and staff. Preparing our presentation and this report has been a heuristic process that helped us develop a more inclusive and organic approach toward future COIL exchanges. We hope our account will be of use to anyone who intends to develop and improve such efforts. Two faculty and two administrative staff have contributed to this report by providing descriptions of the exchanges as well as insights and interpretations of participant responses to questionnaires about their experiences. The report will briefly discuss an initial (2018) COIL exchange and how it informed future efforts. Thereafter, an online intensive study program (OISP) held in 2021 will be discussed in further detail. Results from participant responses to a pre- and post-exchange questionnaire using the Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory (BEVI) will be used as a measure of the OISP exchange program implementation and results based on descriptive statistics will follow. Finally, we will discuss the OISP program from the perspective of the administrative support staff involved in coordinating and making such COIL exchanges possible.
