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.

In fiscal 2015, the scope of participation was expanded to include part-time teachers at member schools.
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.
It is also possible to participate only on one of the two days.

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

 The University Consortium Kyoto held the "2016 Joint FD Training Program A ≫" for two days on September 17 (Sat) and 1≪8 (Sun).
The purpose of this training program is to support educational activities by providing training to new faculty members in cooperation with member universities, and to create a place for exchange beyond the boundaries of universities, a program based on the "Framework for New Teacher Training" of the National Institute for Educational Policy Research, and is planned and operated by the FD Planning and Research Committee of the Foundation every year. Certificates of completion will be awarded to participants who have taken both Program A in September and Program B in March.

This year, 18 participants from seven universities participated.

■Training Day 1

 The first day of the training started with "Career Development of FD and University Teachers" and a lecture was given by Mr. Kenji Mino of Kyoto Sangyo University, Micro Team Leader of the FD Planning and Research Committee. 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 finally the issues of motivation, autonomy, and class revitalization in classes, as well as various teaching techniques, were introduced.
In the group discussion that followed, participants were divided into five groups on the themes of "Dealing with Diverse Students," "Class Management Methods," "Student Motivation," "Classes Outside of Specialization," and "Active Learning."

 After a break, the final lecture, "Basic Knowledge and Workshop on Class Design" was given by Mr. Jun Murata of the Support Room for Students with Disabilities, Kyoto University.
The content 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 figure drawn on it, conveyed the figure only in words, and drew a figure only in the words heard by the other person. When drawing figures, I taught them guidelines such as composition first, so that they could feel the importance of communication in an easy-to-understand manner to others.

■Training Day 2

 The second day of the training began with a lecture by Mr. Takashi Yasuoka of Ritsumeikan University, entitled "Basic Knowledge for Class Design." -Syllabus as a prop in the credit system and syllabus for human resource development-, 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 actually created by the students was reviewed from the perspectives of "achievement goals" and "grading methods" and rewritten appropriately.

 In the afternoon, a lecture by Mr. Norihiro Miho of Kyoto Gakuen University titled "Basic Knowledge and Workshop for Learner-Centered Class Management" was held. Learners are required to learn on their own, and active learning is explained as a method, and techniques such as implementation methods, points, flipped learning, and PBL-type classes were introduced. In the workshop, we designed a lesson that incorporated active learning.

 At the end of the training, following the joint FD training ≪Program B≫ for newly appointed teachers conducted in March 2016, one participant who participated in the ≪ Program A ≫ and completed all the courses was awarded a certificate of completion, and nine participants who participated in the entire two-day schedule were presented with a certificate of participation.

■Joint FD Training ≪Program B≫ Report

 The University Consortium Kyoto held the "2016 Joint FD Joint Training Program B ≫" for two days on March 1≪1 (Sat) and 12 (Sun).

This year, 13 participants from six universities participated.

■Training Day 1

 The training began with an "icebreaker" moderated by Hiroko Hasegawa of Ikebo Junior College of the FD Planning and Research Committee. In addition to introducing himself, he held an icebreaker called "Name de Puzzle". The students seemed nervous at first, but the atmosphere was relaxed as they talked with smiles through the icebreaker.

 After the icebreaker, a group discussion was held after a lecture by Mr. Hiroshi Kurita, Deputy Secretary General of the Foundation, on "Kyoto's Universities and Universities in Kyoto." Using worksheets, they introduced each other's founding spirit, educational philosophy, and student temperament of their own universities and alma maters.

 After a break, Mr. Katsuhiro Enzuki of Doshisha University gave a lecture on "Basic Knowledge for Class Design." Under the theme of "What is a good grading?", he explained grading and gave specific examples of how sports and competitions are evaluated about academic ability, and talked about grading and academic ability.

■Training Day 2

 The second day began with a review of the previous day and was given by Mr. Kazuharu Abe of Kyoto Koka Women's University, a lecturer of the "Workshop for Lesson Design". They learned how to use the mandalat, experienced the mandalat using a sheet, and divided into groups to work on "what is a good class for students".

 In the afternoon, each participant gave a 15-minute mock lesson as a "class practice." The presenter gave a lesson based on the content he or she had designed, and the listener commented on the good points of the mock class. The reason for adopting this method is that teachers do not have many opportunities to praise each other's classes, and by praising rather than criticizing, they will notice the good points of their own classes. Furthermore, by giving advice, they seemed to be able to discover issues and solutions.
After that, the best class was selected, and the reasons for the selection and evaluation were reported.

 At the end of the training, three participants who participated in the ≪Program B ≫ following the newly appointed faculty FD joint training ≪Program A≫ and completed all the courses were awarded certificates of completion, and the five participants who participated in the entire two-day schedule were awarded certificates of completion.
