Professor Katsuhiro Yamazumi

Professor Katsuhiro Yamazumi

Katsuhiro Yamazumi, Ph.D. is a Professor of Education and the Director of the Center for Human Activity Theory (CHAT) at Kansai University in Osaka, Japan. As an educational researcher, he focuses specifically on learning and development from a framework of cultural-historical activity theory and its interventionist methodology. He studies historically new forms of pedagogic practice and also explores interventions in the expansive learning processes of both teachers and children with a view to transforming their real life-worlds. He is currently working on a collaborative project at CHAT called the “New School” Project. The central question of this project is what kind of learning can generate critical and creative agency among learners and how networked learning between schools and the outside world can advance beyond the encapsulated learning that exists within institutional boundaries such as traditional school environments. Along with Yrjö Engeström and Harry Daniels, he is the co-editor of New Learning Challenges: Going beyond the Industrial Age System of School and Work (Kansai University Press, 2005), and his chapter ‘Orchestrating Voices and Crossing Boundaries in Educational Practice’ was also published in Learning in Classrooms: A Cultural-Historical Approach (Aarhus University Press, 2001).
