Social welfare and education for international students
I am researching welfare issues related to children and elders who are foreign minorities in Japan and Japanese nationals whose origin is from outside of Japan. I have also been conducting research on welfare and long-term care of war-displaced Japanese returning from China. In addition, I investigate how students acquire academic skills from the viewpoint of different learning environments.
I am very happy to teach students with diverse cultural differences in IGS. I hope to discuss these cultural similarities and differences in our classes. I believe learning and discussing differences is the first step to mutual understanding. Let’s enjoy our experiences together!
