Overview of the business

As an organizational effort for faculty members to improve and improve the content and methods of classes, the University Consortium Kyoto has been promoting FD activities in the Kyoto area together with member schools since 1995, shortly after its establishment.

In fiscal 2019, we launched the Kyoto FD Exchange Meeting as a place for university faculty and staff to share ideas and concerns related to FD beyond the boundaries of their own universities, and to interact with university faculty and staff on various themes related to FD.

In fiscal 2020, from the perspective of preventing the spread of new coronavirus infection, a total of three meetings will be held online.

Online classes ~Organizing the current situation and issues~ Due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus infection, many universities have been forced to hold online classes. You may have started the spring semester without any experience in conducting university-wide online classes and without sufficient preparation time.
In preparation for the post-corona era, this exchange meeting will exchange and share information on online classes conducted and being conducted at each school in the fourth session, and the fifth meeting will take a step forward and use "flipped classrooms" as an example to make it a place to think about new lesson designs using ICT.

Implementation Report

 In fiscal 2020, the Kyoto FD Exchange Meeting was held three times, with a total of 95 people (total) participating from the first to the third meeting.
In addition, in view of the impact of the spread of the new coronavirus infection this year, all meetings were held online (Zoom meetings).
The first session was titled "Online Classes ~Current Status and Organizing Issues~" and featured topics from three universities: Bukkyo University, Kyoto Sangyo University, and Heian Jogakuin University.
In the group work held after the topic was presented, the participants shared information based on the three topics of "What can be done with online classes?", "Support system for online classes", and "Good and bad points related to online classes", and the contents of discussions in each group were shared using the online whiteboard tool "Whiteboard Fox".
In the second session, under the theme of "Flipped Classrooms that Promote Deep Understanding ~Thinking about Classes Using ICT~", lecturer Mana Taguchi (Associate Professor, Center for the Promotion of Research and Development of Higher Education, Kyoto University) gave a lecture titled "Classroom Design for Implementing Flipped Classrooms: Why and What is Flipped Classrooms For?" on how to practice flipped classrooms that promote deep understanding among students.
After that, in the individual workshop where the "original class (the class we are currently practicing)" was "redesigned" into a flipped classroom, we used "Google Sheets" to conduct group work based on the individual work created by the participants, and shared issues among the participants.
The 3rd meeting was held under the theme of "Teaching IR". In addition, in order to allow as many people as possible to participate, we accepted applications separately for those who wish to participate only in case reports and those who wish to participate in group work.
In the first half of the exchange meeting, Mr. Kazuhiro Fujita (Professor, Faculty of Advanced Science and Engineering, Ryukoku University) gave a report on Ryukoku University's academic IR initiatives, information aggregation and analysis methods, etc.
In the second half, the participants were divided into two groups, one for IR operations and one for beginners, and had a place to exchange information.
In the question about the satisfaction of the participant questionnaire, we were able to receive a high rating of over 90% for the total of "satisfied" and "somewhat satisfied" in each survey.
Based on the opinions received from participants in the next fiscal year and beyond, we will continue to plan and consider the event with the aim of making it even more fulfilling.
