Introductory Course on Teaching and Reading Support for Educators Involved in Study Support

2016-11-15 (Tue) 12:30 - 17:15

Rubric for Professional of Educational and Learning Support

  In this training session, we will deliver an opportunity for educators involved in supporting  "active learning" in students to learn about reading and teaching support at an introductory level.
  What kinds of knowledge and skills are necessary for educators in charge of study support? For example, in the "Rubric for Professional of Educational and Learning Support (draft)" formulated by the Academic Link Center at Chiba University, 25 courses are offered in 7 different areas. There is a lot of knowledge that one should acquire, but by learning about each skill systematically, one can steadily increase their own ability.
  The aim of this training session is for attendees to acquire basic ability in teaching and writing support, skills required of educators involved in study support that are predicted to increase in necessity in the future, and have more confidence in their approach to study support. The content of this session is such that even beginners can easily understand. Our instructors are faculty members who have led a number of training sessions intended for faculty members both inside and outside of the university.

Program
12:30 Doors open
13:00 Opening
13:05~15:00 Introductory Course on Teaching for Educators Involved in Study Support
Lecturer
SATO Hiroaki (Associate Professor, Education and Study Support Division, Center for Education in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Osaka University)
Overview University education is undergoing a large transition. 30 years from now, classes that simply provide information may be replaced by classes held online or even those performed by robots. What is required of university faculty and staff in these circumstances is the ability to prompt students to learn proactively through what is called "active learning." This ability is constructed of 2 different skills: class design skill and teaching skill. This course will allow attendees to obtain both methods for designing interactive classes and teaching skills incorporating active learning. The content of this course can be immediately applied to library guidance and lecture classes.
15:00~15:15 Intermission
15:15~17:10 Introductory Course on Writing for Educators Involved in Study Support
Lecturer HORI Kazunari (Associate Professor, Planning and Development Division, Center for Education in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Osaka University)
Overview This will be an opportunity for us to discuss teaching individuals using the teaching method for writing. In this lecture, attendees will understand the basic problems regarding writing support and be able to use that knowledge in their consultation work.
