Prof Receives AASCU Fellowship
APRIL 14, 2006--UW-RF English Marshall Toman will travel this summer
to a conference that will focus on integrating aspects of Japanese culture
in the classroom as a recipient of a prestigious fellowship through the
American Association of State Colleges and Universities.
The AASCU Sasakawa Fellowship is offered each year to faculty members
in the United States who are not experts in Japanese culture, but who
teach courses that could incorporate Japanese culture into their course.
AASCU sponsors a limited number of faculty members to gather each year
in San Diego, Calif., to study Japanese culture.
Toman says he plans to use his new knowledge in the UW-RF courses, World
Cinema and Freshman English, which has often had portions of the course
devoted to international issues. As an advisor to many students from Japan,
Toman also wants to be more informed about their culture as well.
