     More details

    At a national university in Japan, the authors developed a cross-department and team-taught project-based learning (PBL) English course. The participants were 2nd-year mechanical engineering and architecture students working in mixed discipline teams. Their goal was to complete various engineering projects while developing critical-thinking skills. The authors will briefly outline the course then describe the components of the research study focusing on (a) grounded theory principled analysis of class participants’ 2014 qualitative data, (b) an explanation of how this analysis informed the classroom instructors to add a critical thinking activity in 2015, and (c) an analysis of participants’ reactions to the critical thinking activity. Finally, the authors will discuss future directions for PBL instruction in an English language teaching context.

    日本の国立大学で、筆者たちは複数学科混合でチーム指導型の英語の課題解決型学習(PBL)の授業を開発した。この授業では、建築と機械工学専攻の2年生の混合グループで、架橋モデル制作などの工学プロジェクトの完成を目指し、クリティカル・シンキング(批判的に考える)能力(critical thinking skills)の開発を目標にした。本論では、最初に当授業の課題解決型学習などの教授法の原理を説明する。そして、研究報告として:(1)2014年前期の初回の授業にて参加学生から収集したジャーナル及びアンケート形式データの、グランデット・セオリー・アプローチに基づく分析、(2)2015年後期に行った二回目の授業にて上記の分析がよりクリティカル・シンキングに焦点を当てた授業内容を発展させるうえで与えた影響についての説明、(3)その具体的な活動に対する参加者のフィードバックの分析について述べる。 最後に、英語教育におけるPBL教授法の今後の方向性について考察する。
