President Watanabe Jun’s latest ‘What is active learning?’ (Iwanami Shinsho) to be on sale in January 2020 (Reserve a copy now!)

Also, preparation for its implementation is less than half-way. Nonetheless, active learning potentially nurtures autonomous learners as well as independent citizens who have thorough experience in processes and administration of democracy through its reciprocal and deep learning. The book gives a practical account of the claim.
