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 universities since 1995, shortly after its establishment.
The FD Joint Training Program for Newly Appointed Teachers is a training program that complies with the "Framework of Standards for New Teachers" proposed by the National Institute for Educational Policy Research, with the aim of acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary for university teachers.

<Changes in FY2015>
Based on the results of the "Survey on Training Needs for Part-time Teachers" conducted in FY2014, it has been decided to expand the scope of participation to part-time teachers at member schools from FY2015.
In addition, although "newly appointed faculty" is listed in the program name, there is no limit to the number of years of service because it is a useful program for teachers at all career stages.
Participants are also welcome to participate on only one of the two days.
Please take this opportunity to join us!

Implementation Report

Organized by the University Consortium Kyoto: Newly Appointed Faculty FD Joint Training ≪Program A≫

■Newly Appointed Teachers' FD Joint Training ≪Program A≫ Implementation Report

 On September 5 (Sat) and 6 (Sun), the University Consortium Kyoto held the "2015 Joint FD Training Program A ≪≫" for two days.
The purpose of this training program is to support educational activities by providing training to newly appointed faculty members in cooperation with member universities, and to create a place for exchange beyond the boundaries of universities, a program is organized based on the "Framework for New Teacher Training" of the National Institute for Educational Policy Research, and is held every year. Participants who take both Program A in September and Program B in March will receive a certificate of completion.
This year, we welcomed 29 participants from 11 universities.

■Training Day 1

 The first day of the training started with "Career Development of FD and University Teachers" and was lectured by Prof. Kenji Mino of Kyoto Sangyo University. What is FD? From this perspective, there was an explanation of recent trends in higher education, including the report of the Central Council for Education, and at the end, topics such as motivation in classes, autonomy, and issues of class revitalization, and various teaching techniques were introduced.
In the group discussion that followed, participants were divided into five groups on the following themes: "Dealing with Diverse Students," "Class Management Methods," "Student Motivation," "Classes Outside of Specialization," and "Active Learning."

 After a break, the final lecture of the first day, "Basic Knowledge and Workshop for Learner-Centered Class Management," was held by Professor Tomoko Mori of Kansai University.

 There are five main items, and she talked about learning perspectives, why learner-centered, mini-learning theory, active learning, lesson design that promotes deep learning, and Professor Tomoko Mori's expertise. After that, in the workshop, "Designing a learner-centered lesson," the participants created a theory of how to create a theory of interlocking between internalization and externalization in class, and presented it to each other.

■Training Day 2

 The second day of the training began with a lecture by Professor Takashi Yasuoka of Ritsumeikan University, "Basic Knowledge for Lesson Design." -Syllabus for the image of syllabus and human resource development as props in the credit system- and introduced not only his own classes, but also the curriculum map in the diploma policy from the perspective of the faculty. In the workshop, the syllabus that they actually created themselves was reviewed from the perspectives of "achievement goals" and "grading methods" and rewritten appropriately.

 In the afternoon, Professor Jun Murata of the Support Room for Students with Disabilities, Kyoto University, gave a lecture on "Basic Knowledge of Class Design: Workshop."
The content of the discussion was to consider the current state of support for students with disabilities at universities, understanding and supporting students with developmental disabilities, and communication. In the workshop, participants formed pairs and gave one person a piece of paper with a drawing of a figure, conveyed the shape only in words, and drew a figure only in the words heard by the other person. When drawing figures, I also felt the importance of communication in how to convey it to others in an easy-to-understand manner, such as teaching guidelines such as composition first.

At the end of the training, one participant who participated in the newly appointed faculty FD joint training ≪Program B≪≫≫ held in March 2015 and completed all the courses was awarded a certificate of completion, and 13 participants who participated in the entire two-day program were presented with a certificate of completion.

■Joint FD Training ≪Program B≫ Report

 The Consortium of Universities Kyoto held the "2015 Joint FD Training Program B ≫" for two days on March 1≪2 (Sat) and 13 (Sun). This training is planned by the FD Planning and Research Committee with the aim of supporting the educational activities of newly appointed faculty members by collaborating with universities in the Kyoto area to provide training to newly appointed faculty members. In addition, there are many opportunities for participants to talk freely with each other at the workshop, and it is also a place to build a new network for new faculty members.

This year, we welcomed 12 participants from 6 universities.

■Training Day 1

 The training began with an icebreaker. Divided into three groups, they introduced themselves and said, "The new semester is coming soon. Is there anything new that you would like to try next year? The participants interacted with each other.
At first, the participants looked nervous, but as the icebreaker progressed, they relaxed and there were many smiles on their faces.

 Following the lecture by Hiroshi Kurita, Deputy Secretary General of the Foundation, on "Kyoto's Universities and Universities, Kyoto" and a group discussion on the theme of "Let's learn more about the city and universities of Kyoto." We used worksheets to introduce each other's universities, and the conversation became even more lively in a friendly atmosphere.

 After a break, Professor Katsuhiro Enzuki of Doshisha University gave a lecture on "Basic Knowledge for Class Design." Under the theme of "What is a good grading?", the participants listened attentively to the easy-to-understand and interesting talk about grading and academic ability, using examples of scoring methods for sports and competitions.

■Training Day 2

 On the second day, after reviewing the previous day, a workshop for lesson design was held by Professor Yuki Oki of Ritsumeikan University. They learned the method of forced connection method as a tool for lesson design, and after creating their own self-introductions using the forced connection method as a practice, they used the teaching plan to make use of the teaching plan.
The participants took the advice of Professor Oki and worked earnestly and spent about an hour designing a mock lesson using the forced connection method.

 In the afternoon, participants gave a 15-minute mock lesson based on their own specialty. Mock lessons are conducted with only a whiteboard and pen. Other participants played the students, asking questions and taking notes, just like in real lessons, even for a short time. After that experience, each of them thought about their questions together and gave advice, which seemed to lead them to discover and solve problems.
Finally, the best class was selected for each group, and the reasons for the selection and evaluation were reported.

 At the end of the training, four participants who participated in the ≪Program B≫≫ following the newly appointed faculty FD joint training ≪Program A held in 2015 and completed all the courses, were presented with certificates of completion, and nine participants who participated in the entire two-day program were awarded certificates of completion.
