Active Learning in a Globalized World: Inquiry-based Learning Week at Tamagawa Academy, Tokyo, Japan from 27 October to 1 November 2015


As an extension of its Super Global High School Program, the Tamagawa Academy held a Global Enquiry-Based Learning Week offering a creative platform for reflection, sharing and action for Japanese secondary school teachers on the role of inquiry-based learning in a globalized world. The week included various open classes, a conference (31 October) and a teacher workshop (1 November).   David Selby and Fumiyo Kagawa of Sustainability Frontiers were invited to make a leading contribution to the week.

On 28 October, they facilitated a workshop on active learning on climate change issues for pre-service teachers at Tamagawa University. At the conference on 31 October David gave a keynote speech titled  Searching for the Lost Key: Integral Learning for a Just and Kinder World before some 250 educators from across Japan.
