Thank you for stopping by. My name is Mika Tamura.
I am currently an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University in Japan.
I also serve as Coordinator for International Undergraduate Programs, and I am on the staff of International Education Center of Engineering.
My research spans across a range of areas including internationalization of higher education, intercultural communication and foreign language learning.
I received my PhD from Kyushu University Graduate School of Social and Cultural Studies.
My research spans across a range of areas including foreign language teaching & learning, intercultural communication, and internationalization of higher education. As a liberal arts faculty member belonging to the Faculty of Engineering, I am actively conducting research that integrates humanities and sciences through collaborative research across between disciplines.
I am currently teaching Japanese language courses of three level ranging from pre-intermediate level to professional level using CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) approach where students learn a subject and a second language at the same time. I am also in charge of some EMI (English Medium Instruction) courses such as Advanced Engineering and Japanese Industry.
As a faculty member in charge of international students, I am promoting service learning and community engagement where international students in English-based degree programs in science and engineering English at Kyushu University contribute to the neighboring community with the support of local Government, NGOs, and International Exchange Association.
