Interactive teaching is a way of teaching that aims to draw out, support, and encourage proactive study from learners by emphasizing educational communication between learners and between learners and teachers.
We have set up an online course based on the UTokyo FFP. People unrelated to our University can also take this course, and to date we have welcomed over 24,000 participants. In terms of related events, we hold flip classroom-style workshops of different sizes (from 20 people to 300 people), which are highly rated both inside and outside the University.
The online content is offered via the JREC-IN Portal(*1) and Fisdom(*2). Our activity is also described in the following publications:
