[High school/university faculty and staff] Recruitment of participants for the 17th high school/university faculty and staff exchange meeting on Saturday, July 8

The “Kyoto High School/University Faculty and Staff Exchange Meeting” is a place to share issues faced by both high schools and universities, deepen mutual understanding, transcend standpoints, and exchange for solutions.

This time, we will hold the 17th as follows.

*Until the 14th, it was held under the name of “Kyoto High School Teachers Exchange Meeting”.

The 17th Kyoto High School/University Teacher Exchange Meeting

Students and faculty members who have grown significantly through inquiry curriculum reform. What does the deepening of inquiry bring?

What kind of impact will inquiry-based learning, including the ‘general inquiry time’, have on learning at high school and university?
How should we design inquiry-based learning from the perspective of connecting high school and university? Also, how should we think about the relationship between the inquiry in the subject and the time for comprehensive inquiry?
Then, not only high school teachers but also university faculty and staff members will interact and exchange opinions on what the role of high school teachers should be.

At the 17th meeting, as the director in charge of “Comprehensive Inquiry Time (Isanago Inquiry)” at Kyoto Prefectural Mineyama High School, he promoted curriculum design, cooperation with the community, student activities, and reform of the faculty and staff organization. Through the case reports of teachers who have been in the field, high school teachers and university teachers have learned from various perspectives such as the cycle of inquiry, task setting, presentation methods, evaluation, circulation with subject learning, career education, student transformation, and school organizational development. This will be an opportunity to interact, exchange opinions and share information about high school-university collaboration.
We look forward to your active participation.

The 20th Consortium of Universities Research Exchange Forum

Overview of the business

In order to contribute to the development of higher education, we exchange information on the efforts of each university consortium and research results.

Outline of the event


Creating Sustainable Local Communities Woven by University Consortium
~Aiming to Create New Value in Anticipation of the Post-Corona Era~

of the tournament
 At present, universities and other institutions of higher education play a variety of roles, not only for research, education for young people, and the production of human resources, but also as "knowledge hubs" that create innovation and bearers of regional culture.
On the other hand, in order to respond to a mountain of issues such as a declining birthrate and aging society, global environmental problems, the novel coronavirus infection, and the shift to a digital society, and to create a sustainable society, it is thought that it can only be realized by collaborating not only with higher education institutions alone, but also with various entities such as higher education institutions, governments, and industries, and through exchanges involving the local community.
Therefore, the purpose of this forum is to consider the various forms of collaboration that university consortiums have been involved in in order to create sustainable local communities in the future, and to envision the future form of university consortiums aiming to create new value in anticipation of the post-corona era.
