Kayoko has continually developed innovative teaching techniques, created imaginative resources for student learning, and implemented research-informed curriculum design and assessment strategies to respond to the unique challenges of meeting diverse learning needs in her courses. Kayoko’s pedagogical innovations have recently culminated in various excellence in teaching awards, including a national OLT (Office for Learning and Teaching) Citation Award for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2011) and most recently, a University Student-led Teaching Award (2018) that is based entirely on student nominations. Kayoko is currently developing a variety of online learning materials that are being used to enhance student learning experiences in the Japanese language program. One of her major teaching goals is to encourage students to use Japanese as a tool for gaining new knowledge, rather than learning Japanese as a goal in its own right, through helping them meaningfully engage in the real use of Japanese language in a variety of contexts.
