The Third 2013 FD Program, Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences


Time & Date: 14:00–16:00, Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Venue: Room D116 (Public Lecture Hall), Laboratory of Advanced Research D, University of Tsukuba

1. Purpose and Objectives
This program aims to implement faculty development (FD) activities in order to nurture future-oriented faculty members by systematizing and institutionalizing FD, which is implemented at three levels: Teaching Assistants (TAs), Teaching Fellows (TFs), and Teaching Professors (TPs).
The theme of the 3rd FD program is “Promoting Diversity.”
Our guest speakers are author Sarasa Ohno and Professor Tamaki Saito of Human Care Science at the University of Tsukuba, who will present lectures on “Promoting Diversity,” the requirements for promoting diversity, and the activities needed to create an organization that realizes and nurtures the diversity of a wide range of individuals.
As in the past, we hope to see many graduate students who have been hired as TFs or are hoping to become TFs, along with researchers, assistant professors, instructors, associate professors, professors, and anyone in the university who would like to attend this program.
