Inheriting the tradition from Japan's first Normal School as its matrix, the University of Tsukuba has continued to disseminate research results on education for 151 years and has made a significant impact throughout the country. The purpose of this symposium is to examine how the University of Tsukuba has influenced Japanese school education from its foundation to the present day over its long history, and to discuss on what kind of educational information should be conveyed for the future.
Specifically, this symposium will focus on the roles played by the predecessors - the Normal School, Tokyo Normal School, Tokyo Higher Normal School, Tokyo University of Literature and Science, and Tokyo University of Education- and the University of Tsukuba for the school education from the perspectives of educational sciences (including physical education and the arts education), historical sciences, and disability sciences (special needs education), as well as on how the University of Tsukuba should be involved in the future improvement of school education, referring to the role of its affiliated schools.
In the morning, we will invite speakers from the fields of educational sciences, physical education, arts education, disability sciences, and affiliated schools, who will address, from their respective standpoints, the influence on Japanese school education from the Normal School to the University of Tsukuba, and also the impact of the University's role from a historical perspective. In the afternoon, we will organize a two-hour mini tour to visit historical places associated with the Normal School. Afterwards, together with the speakers from the morning session, we would like to deepen our discussion on the future contribution of the University of Tsukuba to school education.
