専門家と一般市民のコミュニケーション体系の構築特別調査委員会研究協議会資料 2016年度日本建築学会大会(九州) 会期: 2016年8月24日(水)～8月26日(金) 会場: 福岡大学 Whilst architecture courses are usually offered as professional education, introductory housing courses are more often taught as a part of home economics and teacher training; their targets therefore are K-12 teachers and ultimately pupils. Housing has great potential to make a good general education course for non-majors at the college level because it is related to various academic fields. Housing requires attention to the environment and the society, and they are so familiar to students that observation and analysis can be started almost immediately without much preparatory study. Housing can provide ample opportunity to learn problem solving and communication, which is exactly what current general education is expected to offer. School teachers are trained to teach but may not have enough knowledge and skills in architecture, which makes them hesitant to teach this subject. College professors, on the other hand, have more knowledge and may offer a good general education housing course, only if they have the skills and consideration for teaching the general public. If more students study housing in general education, architecture majors and non-majors may have an opportunity to study together and understand each other, which may improve the relationship of professionals and citizens in the future.
