Department of School Education


Overview of the Department

Although specialized areas of our teaching staff relate to education in many different ways, it is possible to divide them into two: Pedagogy and Educational Psychology.
Like other departments, our teaching on an undergraduate level consists of subjects for all students and specialized subjects for relevant students, yet it can be pointed out as our characteristic that in the former, we are in charge of numerous subjects in Subjects for Teaching.
For specialized subjects, all of the teaching staff are in
charge of the Division of School Education for Teacher Training Course, and several staff members are in charge of the Division of Life-Long Education Policies and Division of Practical Education of the Life-Long Education Course.
For the MA in School Education, we structure the curriculum together with the Department of Infant Education and Center for Clinic in Education.

Department Projects and Community Partnership Activities

Although we have not worked on a project as a department, individual teaching staff is actively involved in many activities, open-lectures are organized, consistent research is conducted in conjunction with schools and study groups have been organized with in-service teachers for a long time. Furthermore, some of our staff serve as committee members for Board of Education-related councils and various projects, also delivering lectures on a variety of occasions.
However, we feel that we have reached the stage in which we have to start considering organized activities as a department.
