     More detail

    This project explores service learning as both instructional strategy and motivational tool for language teachers. A broad range of service learning projects are being investigated, with special emphasis on the author's recent attempts in a content-focused EFL program in Japan. An instructional design approach is being used to highlight each phase of the project, including assessment, design, development, implementation and evaluation. Attention is being focused on both theoretical underpinnings and practical guidelines for getting started with service-learning endeavors.

    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.
