Teaching Interests

Kayoko has continually developed innovative teaching techniques, created imaginative resources for student learning, and implemented research-informed curriculum design and assessment strategies to respond to the unique challenges of meeting diverse learning needs in her courses. Kayoko’s pedagogical innovations have recently culminated in various excellence in teaching awards, including a national ALTC (Australian Learning and Teaching Council) Citation Award for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2011). Kayoko is currently developing a variety of online learning materials that are being used to enhance student learning experiences in the Japanese language program. One of her major teaching goals is to encourage students to use Japanese as a tool for gaining new knowledge, rather than learning Japanese as a goal in its own right, through helping them meaningfully engage in the real use of Japanese language in a variety of contexts.

Research Interests

Kayoko has published in the fields of higher education and language education. Her recent publications appear as refereed chapters in edited books and also peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings. These research publications have specifically examined the effectiveness of educational approaches involving learner-centred curriculum development, reflective learning, self-regulated learning, team-based learning, and technology-enhanced language learning (TELL). Kayoko has specific research interests and expertise in the following areas: Approaches to student diversity; Assessment and promotion of student learning; Flexible learning and teaching; Curriculum innovation, design and renewal; Innovation, including new technologies; Learning and teaching in larger classes; The first year experience.
