/Class Outline
To understand the relationship between science and human society and culture from the viewpoint of natural science, acquire specialized knowledge in biological science, especially biological science, which is one of the intellectual foundations of culture. Overview of the relationship with other areas that share information, and learn theories and methods of learning material design in the background of science and culture. In the class, the subjects of natural sciences (biology) will be treated as subjects of living things and the environment surrounding them, while present-day issues in science learning will be taken up, and the relationship between natural sciences and culture and learning materials will be studied. In addition, through the analysis and evaluation of various learning materials, we will clarify the characteristics of learning materials and the logic of learning development in science (biology).
