Abstract: This paper is a description of the work-in-progress for a proposed research study that aims at establishing a broad intercultural framework of teaching methodologies and student learning outcomes for constructing instructional environments at universities in the US and in Japan conducive to developing intercultural communicative competence (ICC) using computer mediated communication technology for foreign language learning (CMCL). The focus is on preparation for and on the prerequisite considerations for the design and implementation of a task-based learning approach through Internet-mediated collaboration by defining quantifiable measurements of ICC outcomes, implementing a collaborative project between Japanese and other nations’ health sciences faculty and students, collecting and analyzing their interactions, and finally collating, synthesizing, and sharing the observed results.
