Osaka University’s workshop announcement: "From G30 to Beyond: Going Global"

Date: Thursday, March 20, 2014 (Friday is a public holiday)

Venue: Seminar room, 1F, Sigma Hall, Toyonaka Campus, Osaka University
(, simply indicated as “27. Hall”)

Language: English

Who should attend: Teachers and practitioners of G30 and other English courses

Organized by: International College and other G30 Programs, Osaka University

Apply to:
  (preferably by February 27, 2014)
  (with your name, title, affiliation, and contact)

 There has been little interaction between the academic staff at the G30 universities, so it seems we have all been going about things our own way, but we must all have experiences to relate regarding our G30 experiences that could be profitably used by others. While some symposia have been held under the G30 umbrella, these have not focused on the experiences and challenges confronting academic staff themselves, and certainly not in English, their working language. This workshop seeks to bring G30 teaching staff together so they can discuss what has worked - and what hasn't - in their own G30 programs, and propose more effective methods going forward; hopefully solutions that will have applicability to all institutions that have been part of the G30 initiative. The focus of the workshop will therefore be on day-to-day practical experience, and not on the evaluation of programs or the like.

2. Proposed schedule:
13:00 - 13:10 Introductory remarks by Yoshinobu ONISHI,

13:10 - 13:45 Keynote speech
  Dr. Davar PISHVA, Professor & Dean, College of Asia Pacific Studies, APU
  “A Decade of International Education at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU)”

13:45 - 15:15 Workshop Session 1: "The Past"

15:15 - 15:35 Refreshments

15:35 - 17:05 Workshop Session 2: "The Future"

17:05 - 17:20 Closing remarks

17:20 - 17:30 (move to the "Sora" on-campus restaurant)
  (, indicated as “3. Student Service and Union”)

17:30 - 19:00 Buffet meal (500 yen partial contribution per participant)

  In Session 1, participants will take turns to briefly describe some issue or issues they have been facing (perhaps 10 or 15 minutes per University, depending on numbers).
  In Session 2, participants will discuss key issues arising from Session 1, and suggest ways forward. A poll may be conducted during the refreshment break to establish which points raised in Session 1 are of most interest to most participants for discussion in session 2; we may already have a clear idea beforehand, however, if participants have sent in their presentation topics beforehand so they can be published in advance. Possible topics might include such things as:

 * Integration of Japanese and non-Japanese students: is it successful in your institution?
 * Academic professional development: have you been able to keep up with research and other career advancement while teaching G30 courses?
 * Post G30 outlook: is your institution still expanding English-taught programs, or have things reached a point of stasis?
 * Student recruitment: are you involved with it (should you be?). If so, should there be a standardised procedure across (post) G30 institutions?
 * Staffing issues: is staff turnover a problem for you or your institution?
 * Integration/separation of G30 and non-G30 courses: how is this handled at your institution?
