Description
本論の目的は、筆者が所属する英語英米文学科の2年生が後期に全員参加する約半年間の北米への留学プログラムについて、留学後に学生が回答したアンケートの分析を試み、そこから今後のより良いプログラムの提供に向けて示唆を得ようとするものである。学生が帰国後に行った過去4年分の事後アンケートを対象にして、授業、課外活動、ホームステイ、私生活、留学先大学、プログラム全般など、多角的な側面から縦断的に量的ならびに質的な分析を行った。その結果、留学先による違い、授業の種類による違い、ホームステイのタイプ(シングルまたはダブル)による違いについての特徴が明らかとなった。最後に、調査結果に基づき、学生の英語力向上、プログラム内容、プログラム運営、今後のさらなる調査、について示唆を得た。
The rapid spread of globalization has become an inescapable issue educational institutions must urgently address. To this end, many institutions of higher education have undertaken various measures, including offering more university courses in English and increasing the number of study-abroad, double-degree, joint-degree, and student-exchange programs. Particularly, the number of university students joining study-abroad programs offered by their universities has been increasing. Therefore, periodically checking the educational effects of such programs will be worthwhile. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate a five-month study-abroad program of a university by adopting qualitative and quantitative approaches, and to provide perspectives for its future improvement. The data were based on questionnaires administered to over 450 students who participated in the program in 2013 to 2016 upon their return to Japan after completing the study-abroad program at universities in the US and Canada. Multiple aspects of the program, such as types of classes, extracurricular activities, homestay experiences, and program contents, were analyzed. The results showed some similarities and differences in the responses of the students, who studied at different campuses and had different homestay settings. Encounters with other international students in class and the establishment of a good personal relationship with a host family in particular seem to greatly impact students' broader impression of their study-abroad experiences. The implications of the study include various ways to improve students' English proficiency, program contents, and program management, as well as areas for further research.
