【Symposium (1)】

How to deal with the diversity of people gathered at the university

Capacity: 420 (priority capacity: 250)

Universities are home to a diverse range of people. There are various races, ethnicities, nationalities, genders, sexualities, disabilities, as well as generations, main languages, religions, occupations, etc. Recognizing that universities are diverse is important in ensuring that minority rights are not violated at universities. The world is currently in the midst of rapid internationalization. In the future of university education and university management, an open view of humanity and society will be required to live in such an internationalized and diverse world.

【Symposium (2)】

"Relearning" for Working Adults and University Education

Capacity: 300 (priority capacity: 180)

In pursuing an educational system that supports human beings to continue learning throughout their lives, it is important to consider the ideal form of university education that is unique to the "100-year life era." Developing programs for working adults through industry-academia collaboration can transform university education and promote diversity in universities. In this symposium, we will question the meaning of "relearning" by working adults in today's society, and discuss the issues of university education in the future from multiple perspectives.

Session 4

Student Education through Regional Collaboration with Universities

Capacity: 30 (priority capacity: 18)

Collaborative activities between universities and local communities have advantages to both research, human exchange, and industrial revitalization, and when students participate in these activities, the community becomes a field where experiential and practical learning can be conducted, and educational effects can be expected to be great. On the other hand, collaborative activities seem to cause different tasks and burdens for faculty members than in ordinary lectures. In this subcommittee, we will introduce examples of collaborative activities with the keywords of collaboration in fields outside the field of teachers' expertise, utilization of student shops, and collaboration with distant regions, and consider effective ways to promote education based on the excellent points and issues.

Session 5

Independent Learning and Community Cooperation in
Special Needs School Teacher Training

Capacity: 30 (priority capacity: 18)

In Japan, which aims to build an inclusive education system by promoting special needs education, there is an urgent need to train teachers with expertise in special needs education. In particular, experience in the school field is important for obtaining a special needs school teacher's license.
Therefore, I would like to think together with the participants about "opportunities to experience the actual teaching profession" and "students' independent learning" at universities with various backgrounds such as the founder, size, and history.

Education reform utilizing LMS (Learning Management System)

Capacity: 30 (priority capacity: 18)

With the spread of smartphones and tablets and the enhancement of the Internet environment, education is also changing significantly. The introduction of LMS (Learning Management System) has also created various benefits such as efficient lectures, paperless operations, efficient paperwork, and closer communication between students and faculty. In this subcommittee, we invite teachers who are using LMS to introduce examples of its use, advantages and disadvantages, and points to note when using it. We would like to discuss how to further utilize LMS in improving education in the future.

Creating a university that is friendly to sexual and minority students

Capacity: 30 (priority capacity: 18)

I would like to have the opportunity to think about how a university should be friendly to sexual minority students from the standpoint of faculty and students from the perspective of the people concerned. Professors with extensive international experience will report on their efforts in other countries, as well as their own initiatives in their own regions and the status of initiatives at universities nationwide. On top of that, I would like to listen to the requests and actual situation of the students concerned, and search for a university where everyone can spend a comfortable time in the future.

Many life science faculties are organized to enable interdisciplinary learning by consolidating various fields of life sciences in various faculties such as medicine, pharmacy, agriculture, engineering, etc. into a single faculty. In this subcommittee, a wide range of information will be introduced about this interdisciplinary learning guidance system, including distinctive initiatives and their problems, collaboration among faculty members, undergraduate education curricula, FD initiatives, etc., based on the case studies of each university. Discussions on the future of the Faculty of Life Sciences and the ideal form of education in the field of life sciences are expected.
