Dr. Chiaki Takagi, lecturer of Japanese in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, was awarded the Alumni Teaching Excellence Award in April. An alumnus of UNCG – she received her doctorate in English with concentration in Postcolonial Literature and Theory – Takagi has taught here since 2000. In this short video shown at the awards presentation, she explains, “It’s very important for teachers to create inviting, warm learning environments, where students feel comfortable to share their ideas – and that’s a very effective learning environment.”
