Joseph Falout, Nihon University


Ema Ushioda has been leading the incorporation of sociocultural theory (SCT) in second language (L2) motivation research, understanding motivation as something that is not innate and fixed within learners, but situational and dynamic, and influenced through their social context. She is programme director of the Doctorate of Education in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching at the University of Warwick, and has recently co-authored Teaching and Researching Motivation with Zoltán Dörnyei (2011). She will be visiting Japan as a plenary speaker at both the JALT CUE Conference in July 2011 and the JACET Summer Seminar in August 2012.

Ema Ushiodaは学習者の動機づけを先天的で固定されたものではなく、社会的文脈の中で状況に応じて動的に変化するものとしてとらえ、第2言語教育の動機づけ研究分野に社会文化理論(SCT)を先駆的に取り入れている。UshiodaはUniversity of Warwick応用言語学・英語教育学博士課程のプログラム・ディレクターであり、先ごろ、Zoltán Dörnyeiとの共著 Teaching and Researching Motivation を出版した。2011年7月JALT CUE 年次大会と2012年8月JACET夏季セミナーで基調講演を行うために来日する予定である。
