FY 2015 First Faculty Development (FD) Program of the Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences

◆Date & Time: Wed. May 27, 2015              14:00–16:00

◆ Place:         Room D116 (Public Lecture Hall), Laboratory of Advanced Research D, University of Tsukuba


The purpose of this program is to organize and institutionalize FD at three levels, namely, teaching assistants (TAs), teaching fellows (TFs), and teaching professors (TPs), so that FD activities can better serve the development of future faculties.

In this first session, model lectures on how a TF should prepare for a lecture and on the skills needed by TFs will be given by members of the Faculty of Human Science at the Tokyo campus and the Faculties of Medicine and  Interdisciplinary Sciences at Tsukuba[u1] .

As always, we encourage the participation of graduate students who are TFs, graduate students who aspire to become TFs, and faculty members; any students who wish to come and join us are welcome.
