[High school/university faculty and staff] Recruitment of participants for the 17th high school/university faculty and staff exchange meeting on Saturday, July 8

The “Kyoto High School/University Faculty and Staff Exchange Meeting” is a place to share issues faced by both high schools and universities, deepen mutual understanding, transcend standpoints, and exchange for solutions.

This time, we will hold the 17th as follows.

*Until the 14th, it was held under the name of “Kyoto High School Teachers Exchange Meeting”.

The 17th Kyoto High School/University Teacher Exchange Meeting

Students and faculty members who have grown significantly through inquiry curriculum reform. What does the deepening of inquiry bring?

What kind of impact will inquiry-based learning, including the ‘general inquiry time’, have on learning at high school and university?
How should we design inquiry-based learning from the perspective of connecting high school and university? Also, how should we think about the relationship between the inquiry in the subject and the time for comprehensive inquiry?
Then, not only high school teachers but also university faculty and staff members will interact and exchange opinions on what the role of high school teachers should be.

At the 17th meeting, as the director in charge of “Comprehensive Inquiry Time (Isanago Inquiry)” at Kyoto Prefectural Mineyama High School, he promoted curriculum design, cooperation with the community, student activities, and reform of the faculty and staff organization. Through the case reports of teachers who have been in the field, high school teachers and university teachers have learned from various perspectives such as the cycle of inquiry, task setting, presentation methods, evaluation, circulation with subject learning, career education, student transformation, and school organizational development. This will be an opportunity to interact, exchange opinions and share information about high school-university collaboration.
We look forward to your active participation.
