- Our Missions and Goals
Teachers are expected to be lifelong learners who research their practices throughout the course of their professional careers. Our special interest group has a mission that closely relates to teacher education and lesson study, and contributes, not only to creating lessons, but also to educational practices, in general. To this end, we set the following long-term goals.
- To propose a new model of teacher learning.
- To design methods to support and encourage learning among teachers and teacher groups.
- To identify why teachers’ practical research is important.
- To design methods to prepare teacher educators.
- Major Activities and Achievements
We hold study groups and workshops on teacher education research and lesson study several times a year to share information and learn from each other. Among the participants are researchers, administrators, teachers, and students.
