Postgraduate Supervision at Hokkaido University 北海道大学における大学院生の指導

At Hokkaido University, I taught in the Graduate School of Education from April 2007 to March 2018. I supervised nine postgraduate students (one PhD, eight master’s students) to successful completion of their degrees. In academic year 2018, following my move to Tokyo, I continued to supervise two PhD students who had not yet graduated. One finished in March 2019, and I will continue supervising the final student until completion.

北海道大学では、2007年4月から2018年3月まで、教育学院で教鞭をとっていました。大学院生9名(博士課程1名、修士課程8名)を学位取得に至るまで指導しました。また、私が東京に移ってから迎えた2018年度には、まだ卒業していなかった博士課程の学生2名の指導を継続しました。そのうち1名は2019年3月に修了し、残るもう1名についても、修了まで指導を続ける予定です。
