CLERA research student Marcus Grandon won a JALT Research Grant (2012) to conduct a study on classroom interaction in Japanese university classrooms. Results will be published in “The Language Teacher” with preliminary findings to be presented at the 2013 JALT International conference in Kobe, Japan.
In addition, judges selected a photograph by Grandon for a prize at a photo contest sponsored by Cengage Learning at the 2012 JALT conference. The photo was displayed in an exhibition at the conference alongside other works by award-winning National Geographic photographs.
The theme for the contest was “Kizuna: Bringing people together”. Here’s a copy of the prize winning photo:
