Pre-Service Teacher Education at Osaka University: A Reflective Report on the Future Faculty Program
Osaka University, Japan
Pre-service teacher education is highly important at research-focused universities. At such institutions, training is mostly centered on conducting research while there is minimal focus on educating students in course design and teaching. To bridge this gap, the Center for Education in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Teaching and Learning Support Division at Osaka University has established an advanced liberal arts program called the Future Faculty Program (FFP). This program targets graduate students wishing to pursue a career in academia. Having completed the program herself, the presenter will provide the audience with a reflective report on the FFP, its strengths and limitations.
