This international seminar is designed for lesson study researchers and practitioners to discuss and learn about the key elements of effective school-based lesson study and how to support schools in using this form of lesson study as part of a system for long-term, independent educational improvement in mathematics teaching.
The seminar will consist of two parts. One day will be a seminar with leading lesson study researchers from Japan, the U.S. and Singapore to discuss school-based lesson study. The second day will be an immersion experience through the participation of a half-day research open house given by a local public school in Tokyo. The research open house is the end of a two-year, school-based research project and all the classes at the school will have public research lessons on mathematics, addressing the school’s research theme, so that the seminar participants may observe the results of the school’s two year efforts to improve their teaching practices in action.
Participants will also receive an iPad application for collecting observation data during a lesson. This application is newly developed by Lesson Study Alliance with the support of IMPULS.
