January 19 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm ESTCost: Free
As academic institutions continue to embrace online and hybrid teaching models and we work to create and integrate digital tools into our pedagogy, keeping up with the technological landscape can be a challenge. This talk will introduce open-access teaching tools through the lens of Japan Studies, highlighting a variety of platforms, databases, and activities that, while created by or linked to scholarship related to Japan, can be used by any educator to enhance research and learning in the classroom.
This event is online only.
