formerly Hokkaido University (retired 2020-03-31)
Noriko and I moved from Sapporo to Tokyo to care for our aging parents. As a side effect, I left Hokkaido University. I am looking for work.
This is a case study of CLIL and STEM task-based learning courses for college freshmen majoring in engineering. Our students are familiar with electronics theory, but are unaware of actual circuits and components. Students build electronic circuits using breadboards and discrete components, and explain construction and operation of circuits bilingually. Although our results are not necessarily generalizable, our experience may assist practitioners seeking course designs or teaching plans for CLIL, STEM, and ESP.
