/Class Outline
Based on a basic understanding of natural science (biology) that contributes to the development of science and culture, we will sequentially experience and verify the development process of learning materials in science (biology). In addition, the developed learning materials will be analyzed and evaluated, and the theoretical and practical skills of learning material design will be developed. In the classroom, students will work on the development of learning materials related to science (biology) in the form of a workshop in the background of the intellectual foundation of science and culture, and learn about the actual development of learning materials. Furthermore, through the activities of planning and drafting trial education practices using the developed learning materials, and the activities of logically considering the design of learning materials from the professional and cultural aspects of natural science, the practice of learning material design Develop competence.
