Summer Workshop

EASE Summer School 2017

  • Lectures: There will be four lectures in the summer school. Four professors will give talks and will serve as committee supervisors.
  • Group discussion: There will be five working groups and each consists of five students from five different member regions. Group discussion is operated under the guidance of coaches and senior professors. Two types of group discussion will be held at the summer school.
    • Dissertation (five sessions): During these sessions, students are expected to present and discuss their studies in small, supportive groups consisted of peers from all over the East-Asian. Furthermore, students are expected to take an active part in the analysis and discussion of other students’ studies or ongoing research. Each session (90 minutes) focuses on only one student’s dissertation study. Here is an example schedule of a session. Coaches may adapt these timings and activities to suit their group.
      • A student presents his/her dissertation study to the group (30 minutes).
      • Generate and clarification questions individually (5 minutes).
      • In pairs, students discuss their reactions to the presentation and prepare at least one question/comment/suggestion per student to share with the whole group later. The presenter now breaks, and chats with the coach or the group members (15 minutes).
      • The whole group reconvenes for the question & answer discussion supervised by the coach. All students are expected to take a full part in these discussions (35 minutes).
      • Concluding comments by the coach (5 minutes)
    • Collaborative proposal (three sessions): The purpose of the sessions is to enable students to discuss and develop a cross-region collaborative research proposal under the multicultural background among east-Asia. The scope of the proposal has to cover common science education issues in Asia and involve effort and specialty from each student. Each working group has to clarify the issue, outline questions, review literature, and design the research method and schedule. The proposal should be showed with a PowerPoint file and presented in the proposal sessions.
  • Proposal presentation: There will be two sessions. During these sessions, each working group presents its proposal in the front of the senior professors. One or two best proposals will be selected by the end of the summer school.
