広報センター(2F)C 室(正門を入ってすぐの左側にある建物です)
When: March 17th (Saturday) 3 月 17 日(土)
Time: 14:00pm~ 16:00pm (Room opens from 13:45) (Please be seated by 13:55)
Workshop 1: Parisa Mehran (of Osaka University) will discuss how to fight against negative stereotypes and behavior
towards others, using both her experiences in Iran and her own experiences as an Iranian English teacher living in Japan.
ワークショップ1では、大阪大学のパリサ・メヘラン氏が、祖国であるイランと日本、両国で英語を教え
てきた経験から、ネガティブな典型とどう向き合うかについて話します。
-----------------------------------------------------------
Workshop 2: Gerry Yokota (of Osaka University) will discuss how educators can encourage inclusion and awareness of
diversity within their classrooms and educational institutions. In today's increasingly diverse and globalized world, this
is an important topic to which all educators must give their consideration.
ワークショップ2では、同じく大阪大学のジェリー・ヨコタ氏が、教育者がどのようにして教育環境の中
での多様性をとらえ、教授する中に組み込んでいくかについてお話します。グローバル化が進む現代にお
いて、教育する側の多様性への意識というのは、非常に重要な論題です。
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Workshop One Abstract: This presentation is a journey to my activism and identity reconstruction as an Iranian English teacher/researcher in Japan
by recounting my critical events—unexpected incidents that significantly influence an individual—and my personal narratives—stories which we tell
ourselves and others about our personal lived experiences. I will discuss how these incidents and stories have changed my life and how I am trying different
ways to be a change agent to dispel stereotypes about my identity. I will introduce my weblog, titled “I Am More Than A Stereotype”, where I write about
my ouch moments in the hope of eliminating macro and microaggressions, defined as “the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or
insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their
marginalized group membership”, and stereotypes by making the invisible visible. I will also explain and illustrate how I create classrooms of and for
activism by integrating my weblog into my lessons and by introducing the real Iran and Iranian people behind the news to my students. I will further offer
a display of items that tangibly represent stages of my journey and identity formation.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Workshop Two Abstract: In my follow-up session, I will facilitate discussion about how educators can and should be responding to the voices of people
like Parisa. Are we making as much effort as she is to be change agents and dispel stereotypes, or could some of us be a little too comfortable with an
inequitable status quo? I have over a decade of experience serving as chair of human rights and sexual harassment committees at my university, and offering
diversity training in FD and PD seminars for both high school teachers and university professors through our Open University and Teaching and Learning
Support Center, especially for professors using EMI in classes with international students. But I am acutely aware that all too often, the programs and
publications offered by our institutions are little more than superficial PR hype that fails to address the realities on our campuses. How can we move beyond
talking the talk to walking the walk? As a bridge or springboard (diving board?) for discussion, I propose that we discuss the JALT Code of Conduct, a short
one-page document that is easily accessible on the website, and explore the roles we are challenged to play in realizing the ideals we profess to uphold.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • 2. ~ Tottori JALT Presents ~ Language Teaching Workshop 1: ( ワークショップ1 ) "I Am More Than A Stereotype": Stories of Change And Hope ステレオタイプからの脱出:希望と変化についての物語 Presenter: Parisa Mehran of Osaka University パリサ メへラン(大阪大学) Language Teaching Workshop 2: ( ワークショップ2 ) Bridging the Gap Between Ideal and Reality: Diversity Awareness in Action 理想と現実の狭間を埋めるにために:多様性を意識した行動とは? Presenter: Gerry Yokota of Osaka University ジェリー ヨコタ(大阪大学) Location: Tottori University 鳥取大学(湖山キャンパス) In Room C (2F) of the Kōhō Center, which is just inside the main gate 広報センター(2F)C 室(正門を入ってすぐの左側にある建物です) When: March 17th (Saturday) 3 月 17 日(土) Time: 14:00pm~ 16:00pm (Room opens from 13:45) (Please be seated by 13:55) Workshop 1: Parisa Mehran (of Osaka University) will discuss how to fight against negative stereotypes and behavior towards others, using both her experiences in Iran and her own experiences as an Iranian English teacher living in Japan. ワークショップ1では、大阪大学のパリサ・メヘラン氏が、祖国であるイランと日本、両国で英語を教え てきた経験から、ネガティブな典型とどう向き合うかについて話します。 ----------------------------------------------------------- Workshop 2: Gerry Yokota (of Osaka University) will discuss how educators can encourage inclusion and awareness of diversity within their classrooms and educational institutions. In today's increasingly diverse and globalized world, this is an important topic to which all educators must give their consideration. ワークショップ2では、同じく大阪大学のジェリー・ヨコタ氏が、教育者がどのようにして教育環境の中 での多様性をとらえ、教授する中に組み込んでいくかについてお話します。グローバル化が進む現代にお いて、教育する側の多様性への意識というのは、非常に重要な論題です。 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Workshop One Abstract: This presentation is a journey to my activism and identity reconstruction as an Iranian English teacher/researcher in Japan by recounting my critical events—unexpected incidents that significantly influence an individual—and my personal narratives—stories which we tell ourselves and others about our personal lived experiences. I will discuss how these incidents and stories have changed my life and how I am trying different ways to be a change agent to dispel stereotypes about my identity. I will introduce my weblog, titled “I Am More Than A Stereotype”, where I write about my ouch moments in the hope of eliminating macro and microaggressions, defined as “the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership”, and stereotypes by making the invisible visible. I will also explain and illustrate how I create classrooms of and for activism by integrating my weblog into my lessons and by introducing the real Iran and Iranian people behind the news to my students. I will further offer a display of items that tangibly represent stages of my journey and identity formation. ----------------------------------------------------------- Workshop Two Abstract: In my follow-up session, I will facilitate discussion about how educators can and should be responding to the voices of people like Parisa. Are we making as much effort as she is to be change agents and dispel stereotypes, or could some of us be a little too comfortable with an inequitable status quo? I have over a decade of experience serving as chair of human rights and sexual harassment committees at my university, and offering diversity training in FD and PD seminars for both high school teachers and university professors through our Open University and Teaching and Learning Support Center, especially for professors using EMI in classes with international students. But I am acutely aware that all too often, the programs and publications offered by our institutions are little more than superficial PR hype that fails to address the realities on our campuses. How can we move beyond talking the talk to walking the walk? As a bridge or springboard (diving board?) for discussion, I propose that we discuss the JALT Code of Conduct, a short one-page document that is easily accessible on the website, and explore the roles we are challenged to play in realizing the ideals we profess to uphold. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Parisa Mehran's Bio Data: PhD candidate at Osaka University.
