【授業の概要と目的(何を学ぶか) / Outline and objectives】
This course is for students intending to explore second language learning (SLL) focusing on motivational issues within the context of comparative education. It provides a basic understanding of different conceptual frameworks of second language (L2) motivation and a historical overview of the development of L2 motivational studies focusing on social, cognitive and educational aspects of motivational psychology. Its purpose is to give an insight into the significant variables of L2 motivation as core elements in L2 education from a global perspective. It explains how they are affected by globalisation and local settings related to L2 learners, such as their ethnic background, age, language preferences, L2 learning conditions, etc., and especially by comparing the teaching of English to other foreign languages. This course also studies how to put related knowledge into practice: it gives an insight into collections of related research studies ranging worldwide, and it is expected to stimulate debate on how to deal with motivational aspects of learners, lessons, teaching materials, evaluation, etc. effectively in L2 education.

【到達目標 / Goal】
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
(1) Learn different concepts, perspectives, and theories in L2 motivation.
(2) Explain various factors that influence building conceptual frameworks of L2 motivation.
(3) Utilise the theoretical knowledge of L2 motivation to explain motivational issues of L2 education.
(4) Discuss motivational approaches to deal with controversial issues of L2 education.
