SUNY Ulster Instructor Presents Workshop in Japan
Richard Cattabiani, SUNY Ulster’s Director of International Programs (Retired) and instructor in the English and Philosophy Department presented a two day workshop on Active Methods in Teaching and Learning at Kansai University in Osaka, Japan. Sponsored by a grant from the Japanese Ministry of Education, the clinic is a practical “hands on” workshop for teachers of English as a foreign language.
Mr. Cattabiani also introduced SUNY’s Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) program to his Japanese colleagues. The COIL program is a leading international methodology focused on the emerging field of Globally Networked Learning (GNL); it is a teaching and learning procedure which provides innovative cost-effective internationalization strategies. SUNY Ulster’s COIL program fosters faculty and student interaction with peers abroad through co-taught multicultural online and blended learning environments emphasizing experiential student collaboration.
Cattabiani has been invited to return to Kyoto, Japan for a week long forum in August.
