Summer IEP faculty

ELP’s summer IEP considerably relies on hiring visiting faculty members. These visiting faculty members are highly qualified and experienced to teach English language courses to university-level students and professional groups. They come from overseas and within Japan. ELP’s full-time faculty members are responsible for curriculum development and materials preparation for all the summer IEP courses before the program begins, and course coordination work during the program. They are also responsible for recruiting visiting faculty members. One of the full-time faculty members serves as the IEP Director. All the full-time faculty members also teach courses along with the visiting faculty during the summer IEP.
