Matoba, Masami; Shibata, Yoshiaki; Sarkar Arani, Mohammad Reza
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v6 n1 p55-65 Apr 2007
This paper first reviews the literature on school-university partnerships to evaluate and describe challenges and paradigms of Japanese approaches to school-university partnerships in theory and practice. Secondly, it clarifies the role of three-year school-university partnership between the Nagoya University and the Tokai City Board of Education in the central Japan for creating an effective environment in schools for teachers to learn from each other and for developing more learning-centered education that focuses on the real needs of students. From this study it can be claimed that more effective relationships between Japanese school teachers and university researchers can be established through developing collaborative a school-based research framework especially through the process of "jugyou kenkyuu" (lesson study).
