    This paper discusses the effectiveness of poster presentations as a teaching methodology in Content and
    Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) courses. In the course being described, students are tasked to do
    research, design and make poster presentations on a topic from each of the themes covered. The authors
    propose that these presentations provide an opportunity to meet Coyle's four Cs criteria: content,
    communication, cognition, and culture, and share their own experience of how they have successfully
    integrated poster presentations as a core activity in classroom learning. Links between CLIL and higher
    motivational levels are also explored. Finally, the results of an extensive student questionnaire are
    presented. The questionnaire was designed to elicit the learner's perspective on their experiences
    researching, preparing and presenting the posters. The results showed a general satisfaction among the
    students with the process as a means to communicate new information to one's audience. Nevertheless,
    some of the student responses reveal they miss some opportunities to go beyond content and to improve
    more on their L2 learning and communication through the processes of research, practice, and
    presentation.

    Ishikawa Yuka, Cullen Brian, Asai Atushi

      More details

    The aim of the research is to develop a new English education system for first year student majoring in engineering at institutes of technology in the Tokai area. We created an English teacher's network for TEEE (Tokai English Education for Engineering Students), in order to clarify current problems, to develop a new methodology, and to apply it to our students. Results of the study suggested that teaching ESP (English for Specific Purposes) through the TEEE system can be effective not only for graduate students but also for first year students, since students are generally motivated to study science and engineering although their technical and English knowledge is very limited.
