Ibaraki JALT:

Teaching Culture Ethnographically; Study Abroad Programs

Date: Sunday, April 27th, 2008 Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Speaker: Elaine Gilmour, Miyagi Gakuin Women's University

This presentation examines what an ethnographic approach to teaching culture is, and suggests components for a community based ethnography course. We'll also consider the point of such a course from the students' perspective, by looking at questionnaire response data provided by students who have participated in Study Abroad programs during their university experience.
