Upcoming Events


Cameron Romney (Doshisha University)
Sunday, 16 April 2017 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm

To some extent, all teachers are materials writers. For some it is just an occasional review worksheet or a homework assignment. For others their self-made materials are the bulk of their coursework; most teachers of course, fall somewhere in between. Making great materials presents a number of challenges for teacher-writers in two main areas: coming up with the content of the materials and the actual materials themselves. This workshop seeks to address some of these challenges to help teacher-writers produce the best materials they can.

The first half of the workshop will discuss two aspects related to the content of teaching materials. First participants will learn about a systematic approach developed by the presenter for creating supplementary handouts to compliment commercially published textbooks. Next, participants will explore Japanese copyright law as it applies to adapting authentic language sources for self-made materials. After a short break the second half of the workshop will focus on making handouts; specifically by exploring ways that visual design is part of the materials creation process.

Participants should come away from the workshop with a greater understanding of some of the challenges involved in making their own materials and with concrete suggestions, in the form of best practices, to improve their own materials.
