【University Teachers/English Training】9/9 (Sat) “Teaching Methods for Subjects Using English that Can Be Utilized for Remote Classes” Recruitment of Participants

Purpose of the event

As the globalization of higher education accelerates, such as the enhancement of support for international students and the promotion of collaborative projects with overseas universities, the English proficiency of university faculty and staff has become indispensable as a basic ability.
In addition, international students from many countries and regions have their own cultural backgrounds, and in order to communicate smoothly, it is essential to understand customs, social norms, religions, etc. beyond language.
For this reason, the University Consortium Kyoto conducts training to improve English proficiency by conducting case studies in various situations, as well as “skill improvement training for university faculty and staff” to learn about cultures other than English-speaking countries.

As part of the 2023 “Skill Improvement Training for University Faculty and Staff,” we will hold an online English course for faculty members who are or may be in charge of English classes at universities as follows. We look forward to your participation.
