This course is part of the Dynamic Learning lessons carried out by Prof. Murod Ismailov at the University of Tsukuba (since 2014) and Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (since 2018).   

Dynamic Learning is characterized by constant change and activity. Within this learning framework, the content of the Course does not change. What changes is the way how knowledge is powered by students themselves and their immense energy, curiosity and creativity.  For more examples, please check other pages of this website.

This learning takes place organically, growing and evolving through more unconventional means, with the students collaborating, creating, and communicating to demonstrate progress and mastery.

Click on each of the block below and see some of the examples of the Dynamic Learning framework. 

  • Creativity: 

    The use of imagination and original ideas to solve problems and create.

    Examples:

    Our classes cultivate creativity and innovation with projects that require learners to design original solutions, invent something new to solve a problem, or integrate art and design with room to fail.

  • Communication: 

    The ability to effectively and clearly communicate for a variety of audiences and using a variety of tools and mediums.

    Examples:

    Our class will give students opportunities to interact with experts, authors, and real-world audiences. The class activities will help them experience reading, writing, speaking and presenting in English in a whole new way

  • Collaboration:

    Learning and working in groups or teams, locally and/or globally, to achieve a goal.

    Examples:

    Our classes ensure there is purpose to the collaboration and not just group work. During our activities students form partnerships and teams strategically with assigned leadership roles, including team-building exercises, establishing collaboration guidelines and shared decision-making.

  • Critical Thinking:

    The ability to conceptualize and evaluate information for the purpose of deeper understanding, problem solving, and guiding action.

    Examples:

    Our classes create learning experiences, such as mock trials or debates, scientific investigations, interpreting events in history or literature, or design challenges.
