The British Association for Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language - BATJ
May 2018 JF/BAJS/BATJ Spring Symposium on (Re)defining and Promoting Japanese Studies in UK

Date: 18th (Fri) and 19th (Sat) May 2018
Venue: Tuke115, Regent's University London

The symposium consists of keynote presentations and four panel discussion sessions. The key questions are:

1. Understanding the ‘hook’:

a.

What ignites students' interest in Japanese studies and draws them into studying Japanese language and culture at the University level? (E.g, academic research, employment, leisure interest).
b. Has there been any change in students’ profile for the last 10 years?
c. Understanding what students want and need, and how to best respond to them.
2. Identifying the current trend of the curriculum of the Japanese Studies programmes across UK. In particular:
a. How to best use Japanese language materials in Japanese Studies classes/modules
b. How to fully integrate the year abroad into the programme (and what happens if they cannot go)

3.

Crystallising the future direction for a better partnership between Japanese Studies lecturers and language teachers
