The 2nd FD program of the Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences: Wednesday 9th July, 2014

Date and Time: Wednesday 9th July, 2014     14: 00 ~15:20
Place: D 116, Open Lecture Room, Research D Building, University of Tsukuba

1.Effect and Propose

This project aims at organization and institutionalization of FD which is composed of three levels of TA (Teaching Assistant) – TF (Teaching Fellow) )-TP (Teaching Professor), and it is intended to practice FD activities for Fostering future type university students.

This time, Mr. Somasa Hasome, Chief of Education organization Support Division, Education Promotion Department and Mr. Shinobu Sato, head of Education planning Office give lectures the theme of graduate education

As before, we expect that the graduate students who became TF, the graduate students aiming for TF, as well as faculty members and applicants at the university.

Announcement of the 3rd human High performance seminar “The Key to improving blood-endurance performance”

Date&Time: Monday, June 30, 2014, 17:00~
Place: 5C105, University of Tsukuba

Lecture Contents: The blood circulates through the whole body by the function of the circulatory system, and it plays various functions such as the supply of oxygen and the nutrient to each organization, the elimination of the waste matter, and the maintenance of the homeostasis of the body temperature.

In this seminar, we show the relationship between the amount of blood and the composition, the maximum oxygen intake and the temperature control ability in a hot environment, and explain that blood is an important factor in improving endurance performance.

In addition, we will explain the factors influencing the expression of these effects on the improvement of blood adaptation and endurance performance by endurance training in a hot environment and under low oxygen (high altitude) environment.


Lecture: Associate Professor Kazunobu Okazaki(Osaka City University Research Center for Urban Health and Sports, Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine, Department of Exercise and environmental physiology)

He specializes in exercise physiology and environmental physiology. In particular, he is engaged in research on effective training methods for improving the circulatory and body temperature regulation functions for exercise training, hot environments, and low-pressure hypoxia (Highland) environments, improving endurance performance and maintaining and improving health life.


Caretaker: Mr. Takeshi Nishiyasu
