'Resisting native-speakerism in Japanese higher education: Towards a more equitable model of course development and design.'
There are many controversial issues surrounding language education in Japanese higher education, many of which involve complaints that teachers are discriminated against on the basis of their perceived speakerhood. This project is a study of one teaching department in a Japanese university which seems to offer a more fair and equitable alternative to most others. The purpose of this study is to find out how this has been achieved, and what can be learned from this for future course planning and implementation.
