Lecture prior to going on a study tour
The Maple Program provided field trips to Okayama Prefecture on November 27-28, 2019. A lecture was given at the CJLC Hall on November 19. The purpose of this trip was to deepen students’ knowledge of Japanese society and culture and develop their ability to understand Japan from various perspectives through tours of the former Shizutani School, Korakuen Garden, Washuzan Observatory, Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter, and Ohashi‘s House.
In the preliminary lecture, Professor Mizuno gave an overview of the field trip, and expectations for the field trip increased. After that, the TF (Teaching Fellow) explained how to look up the information and how to present the information that they looked up, which made them more willing to gather information while traveling and to present it in class.
