We are pleased to announce that Kiyotaka Miyazaki will be a Visiting Professor with the IERG from mid-May to mid-July, 2015. He is professor, of educational psychology, in the faculty of Human Sciences, Waseda University. For a number of years he has been an associate of the IERG, and has given memorable presentations at a number of our summer conferences in Vancouver. His research background is in cognitive psychology. He has been studying the teaching-learning process in, mostly, elementary school and early childhood education. He has been engaged with cultural-historical theories, and has published work on both Vygotsky’s and Bakhtin’s ideas. He has published books on improving children’s learning, on interrelationships between students’ and teachers’ learning, and on children’s discovery and creativity in learning through artistic work. One of his research interests is to use IE ideas, particularly the recapitulation view of development, to develop Japanese practitioners’ uses of Imaginative Education.
