    This paper introduces an action research project conducted at the Hirao School of Management during the 2019 Fall semester. The project involved a group of
    twenty-eight students enrolled in a Beer Industry Project (BIP) taught by the author, and aimed at investigating the effectiveness of augmenting a project-based learning
    (PBL) curriculum with team-based learning (TBL) elements. This report starts with some contextual background, goes on to offer brief outlines of PBL and TBL, and then includes a week-by-week overview of how each class meeting unfolded. Findings and discussion are then provided to evaluate the successes and shortcomings. It is hoped that this research might inspire others to experiment with PBL, TBL and other active learning approaches.

    Active Learning (AL) in undergraduate programs has been highlighted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as an educational aim in Japan for over ten years. The push to adopt AL approaches has been felt at universities throughout Japan, and one answer has been to adopt Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) as a cornerstone in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) programs in different parts of the country. The current paper provides an overview of one such program, with special attention to CALL elements that have been designed into the overall curriculum, specific courses, and individual lesson plans. Participants will be walked through the what, why and how of several web-based apps and online/offline tools for facilitating content delivery, language acquisition, course management, reflection, and assessment. The central role played by the theoretical frameworks of learner engagement and self-determination theory (especially the basic psychological needs of competence, autonomy, and relatedness) will be highlighted as powerful lenses through which to evaluate CALL elements, designing curriculum and boosting learner engagement.
