Japanese Language Lecturer
Eiko Ushida is the recipient of numerous awards for excellence in language instruction and has been teaching advanced Japanese language at the School since 2003.
In 2005, Ushida was awarded a UC Language Consortium for a Japanese web based Content-Based Instruction (CBI) project that focuses on students studying a topic or subject matter in a target language, instead of their native language. CBI engages students, allows them to fulfill a purpose with the language they are learning, and lets them become more independent in their language instruction. Ushida applies these methods in her teaching today.
