MetadataShow full item record
This paper is a preliminary report, not a scientific article, on my research travel to Japan that lasted for about 5 weeks in the end of 2012. The frame of the research was Educational Leadership with main focus on the role of Teacher Education in contemporary Japan. I chose to do my research in Aichi and Kinki because most of my partners are there. By the help of them I could visit universities of teacher education, kindergartens, schools and other cultural institutions. I also had the chance to make interviews with students, teachers and professor - and I could observe practice in kindergartens, schools and universities. Some relevant documents on teacher education was collected, both from historical and recent records.
