  • The 2nd CEGLOC Conference on Language Education Intercultural Skills in the 21st Century Classroom

    12 08, 2018

    The University of Tsukuba CEGLOC FD committee

    in collaboration with the

    JALT Intercultural Communication in Language Education SIG

    and

    Ibaraki JALT Chapter

    will hold

    the 2nd CEGLOC Conference on Language Education
    Intercultural Skills in the 21st Century Classroom
    Tsukuba, December 8th 2018


    Studying and working in today’s globalized and highly digitized world certainly has its challenges and getting students ready to live and work in a multicultural environment has become a necessity hard to ignore. Japan’s MEXT has been pressuring universities to increase programs that will allow intercultural awareness development, as well as encouraging intercultural skills development, as students need to become more tolerant and accepting of cultural differences. Yet, within these neatly formulated demands, many questions remain unanswered. How do we educate for intercultural communication when some students have never had an intercultural encounter, or while some might be reluctant to engage in such encounters? How can we develop our students’ intercultural skills? What can we do to encourage more collaboration between international students and Japanese students?

    This conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in a meaningful dialogue, that will enable them to bridge theory to classroom praxis in the intercultural communication context. The organizers invite researchers and practitioners interested in topics related to the development of intercultural skills in the foreign language classroom to contribute with their expertise.
