JAPANESE UNIVERSITY REQUEST

Wanted: Global E-Learning Activities

     I’m Masataka Kasai, a GILE officer. I’m doing a research project for Japanese universities (JSPS Kakenhi 16K01149) on teaching approaches that mix in-class study with e-learning activities.      

     I’m looking for activities, particularly e-learning, that help students understand global issues and engage to solve them. Any activity at any level is fine. Please send me any activities you have. Thanks!
