Kyoto FDer School (2011-2018)

Business Overview

As an organizational effort for faculty members to improve and enhance their teaching content and methods, the University Consortium Kyoto has been promoting FD activities in the Kyoto area together with member universities since 1995, shortly after its establishment.
Kyoto FDer Juku is a study group mainly for faculty and staff who are FD committee members and FD administrative staff at each university and junior college in order to train faculty and staff who will become leaders in FD activities at the member schools of the University Consortium Kyoto.

From 2018, “Kyoto FDer Juku” will be held in a different form.
Until 2017, the symposium was held once a year as a medium-sized symposium, but from 2018, it was reorganized into a small-scale training program held multiple times a year with the aim of providing a program that will lead to the development of faculty and staff who will become leaders in FD activities.

The 2nd Kyoto FDer Juku has expanded the scope of participation to non-member schools and extended the application period.

Part 1
Theme : “Laying the Foundation for Promoting FD on Campus”
OverviewThe contents of this seminar are threefold. First, we will provide basic knowledge about the concept, definition, and significance of FD, as well as related policy trends. Second, we will introduce examples of university-wide and undergraduate initiatives at Kyoto Tachibana University. Thirdly, participants will discuss how to promote FD at their own universities in the future.
It will be an opportunity for various people involved in FD to review the current state of FD at their home universities and think about future measures.

Part 2
Theme: “Exploring the Direction of Educational Development in Universities, Faculties, and Departments”
Overview The purpose of this seminar is to clarify the direction of educational development in the university, faculty, or department to which the participants belong through a workshop centered on discussion.
As for the contents, I will summarize the contents of the first course (basic knowledge of FD) in the first part. Second, we will share the case studies of each university and relativize the situation of our own universities (faculties and departments). Third, we will look at the educational development issues of our own university (faculty and department) and consider where we should start. Through the above three points, we hope to provide an opportunity for each participant to gain an opportunity to promote further educational development in the field.
