TOK Study Seminar by A-JIS and Ritsumeikan University 13 July 2018

The TOK1 study seminar of IB2 education took place at the conference hall of Ritsumeikan University in Osaka on June, 30.

A-JIS TOK specialist, Mr. Ozawa, introduced an overview of the methodology and explained case studies with his presentation “How to deliver TOK lessons”. The seminar was a great opportunity for participant schools to learn about what the study of TOK can offer to students and how to implement the methodology in their classrooms.

The seminar caused a very positive reaction amongst participants who were able to discuss about education in Japan and exchange ideas and methods of teaching and implementing TOK.

Consequently, we believe the TOK seminar will serve as the starting point for implementing a global education program in Japanese classrooms.

As a IB World School, A-JIS will proceed with more educational seminars and events in order to foster global education in Japan.
