Additional information on II:  Microteaching

The participants of the Workshop are divided into two groups and each group practices microteaching twice on alternate days as above.
During microteaching each participant gives a 5-minute lecture from his/her course,and receives comments and feedback from the instructor, co-instructor and other participants.  The focus of microteaching is about their style of lecturing and presentation,not about the contents of the lecture. The microteaching is video-recorded, and each participant receives a copy of it (SD memory card) after the session. The participants are expected to watch the video of their first microteaching, find out the areas of improvement, and prepare for the second microteaching based on the feedback and comments. Please rest assured that video-recorded data is only for the person who does the microteaching and will never be open to the public.

Award of Certificate

The participants who have participated fully in all the programs of workshop would receive "Certificate of Completion".

Please bring the following with you to the workshop.

* 5-minute-long content in English from your course.
 Any part is fine, but the overview might be easy for audience to understand.
*If necessary, you can use Power Point data, handouts, circulated materials in English, etc. and other English materials used in your course.

※ We will prepare PCs, projector, screen and white board in the room. Please feel free to ask us if you need something else.
