☑Who Should Attend?
Graduate students, post-docs and young faculty members at the University of Tokyo. We welcome both Japanese and international members who are in the early stages of their academic careers and who struggle to teach in English in the fields of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
☑Why is it Relevant to You?
Given the progress of globalization on campus, current and future faculty members are now expected to develop not only their research skills but also their ability to teach in English. This workshop will help you acquire and improve your basic teaching skills in English.
☑What are the Outcomes?
The participants will:
・Learn basic skills of managing a class in English.
・Get tips to handle difficult situations in teaching.
・Build a network among current and future faculty members.
This workshop addresses the issues of teaching students with various backgrounds at universities. We will discuss some of
the major issues that teachers (as well as Teaching Assistants, Tutors and Lecturers) face when teaching in English. Then, we will explore strategies to resolve such issues.
