Japanese Scholars Study K-12 Education Issues at CSUF
February 20, 2014
Through a series of seminars, 21 students and two professors from the College of Education, Soka University in Japan, will study K-12 education issues in a three-week program presented by University Extended Education.
The series, led by Victoria B. Costa, professor of secondary education, begins Feb. 24.
The program explores issues in Japanese and U.S. education related to high-stakes testing, special education, and 21st-century learner and engineering design — an activity that helps students develop communication skills and engage in critical thinking, problem solving and working collaboratively. Activities will include lectures, interaction with American students, and visits to local elementary and high schools.
