Skill Session: Short Program “Facilitation”
We welcomed Mr. Masanori Fujita (actor/producer at Ongakuza Musical), the instructor of Skill Session, as an instructor for the program. He introduced us to an experiential 4.5-hour session concerning the theme “Creating a Space” by using techniques from musicals. The instructor and participants collaboratively explored what a learning space should be in the new age. The participants learned four kinds of icebreakers and practiced self-introductions, which had been highly appreciated in the online course. They also practiced how to project their voices through one-on-one lessons with actors from Mr. Fujita’s Ongakuza Musical. They learned about correct posture and how to walk beautifully and experienced an improvisation, all immediately applicable to their teaching. For the finale, all participants acted out a scene together.
Knowledge Session: Short Program “Rubrics”
Associate Professor Kayoko Kurita (Center for Research and Development of Higher Education, The University of Tokyo) and Mr. Hideo Narita (instructor at Kawaijuku Educational Institution) served as instructors. During the orientation, participants reviewed what they had learned in the online course and covered the main points concerning creating rubrics. In the workshop, they experienced the whole process of creating rubrics by using first-year undergraduate course “Writing Course” as an example. They shared the points to be taken care of when using rubrics by organizing the problems they found in the process.
