Interactive teaching

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 hold “real sessions” (face-to-face classes) over a three day period for 20 people who are interested among those who have viewed the videos, furthered their learning, and completed the course.

During real sessions, participants can get involved in different types of work with other members, with a supervising faculty member facilitating.

  • This course is available free of charge on gacco, a site that offers massive open online courses (MOOC).
  • If they have furthered their learning through the videos and completed the course, people who are interested also have a chance to attend “real sessions” (face-to-face classes)!
  • This course offers valuable information and learning about teaching in an interactive manner.

University of Tokyo Future Faculty Program (Pre FD for graduate students: FFD)

We run the University of Tokyo Future Faculty Program (UTokyo FFP), which targets University of Tokyo graduate students who are aiming to become university teachers, post-doctoral students, and young faculty members, with the goal of improving their teaching ability.

As higher education becomes more universal and university students more diverse, the approaches required from university teaching staff are changing.

This program is open to graduate students across the University, creating exchanges between graduate students studying in a variety of research fields.

Participants gathered from different areas of research stimulate each other, and in so doing can increase their own teaching abilities as they create valuable human relationships.

  • This program is for existing University of Tokyo graduate students, post-doctoral students, and young faculty members.
  • It enhances their teaching and research abilities.
  • Participants can create valuable networks by studying together with people from different fields across the University.
  • We accept applications for each semester in March and August every year.
