Teacher Education Center

One of the professions in which Konan University students make use of their specialty training is teaching. In order to support prospective teachers at our university, we established the Teacher Education Center in October of 2005. In addition to regular classes in the theory and practice of education, we provide extracurricular lectures and seminars to improve students’ practical skills in teaching. From time to time, we invite Konan graduates who are working in junior or senior high schools, to come and share their practical experience as teachers, which is always a good opportunity to motivate our students. The center also offers information and guidance regarding the Teaching Staff Examinations for currently enrolled students as well as for graduates.
