This paper continues a discussion of 21st century goals in education as they relate to the Japanese Ministry of Education guidelines, PISA outcomes and recommendations, and for broader contextualization, American approaches to 21st century education. With interest in meeting these goals at the university level, the authors are exploring the possibility of an experiment in melding of design and Media English into an interdisciplinary curriculum. This paper in particular looks at current practice regarding the use of TED talks in the English literacy classroom and in a basic design course. It also identifies ways that current practice is connecting to the 21st century goals at this juncture in time.
