Lecture contents

Theme What is curriculum design?
~Aiming for Consistent Curriculum Design~
Outline     In recent years, Japan higher education has been required to transform into an organizational and systematic curriculum based on diploma policies and curriculum policies.
Although each university has been tackling various issues through educational reform and FD, it is said that society is still dissatisfied with the current achievement of improvement in undergraduate education.
The most notable aspect of the realization of undergraduate education as a program is the policy-based curriculum design.
How will the conventional curriculum be transformed from teacher-centered curriculum to an organized and systematic curriculum?
Also, how is specialized education and so-called general education positioned in the curriculum conducted at each university, and how should they be related?
Based on this awareness of the issues, participants will share the process and content of discussions from previous cases of universities that have specifically worked on curriculum reform, and will provide an opportunity for participants to obtain hints on problem solving and optimal decision-making processes at their home universities.
