SLA and Budo (Martial Arts): Extended, embodied cognition and practical implications for ELT

Date: Sunday, July 8th, 2012 Time: 2:15 PM - 4:20 PM

Speaker: Yosuke Yanase (Hiroshima University)

Yosuke Yanase will use Budo as an analogy for SLA and highlight some interesting aspects of skill acquisition and consciousness/non-consciousness in Budo. For explanation, he'll use a neuroscientific framework of cognition that is both extended and embodied. Yanase will also talk about some practical issues, including cultural differences between TEFL by Japanese teachers and TESL by native teachers.
