Thematic Workshop November 10, 2021 (Wed) 13:00-14:30 Online

Theme: "Reasonable Accommodation in Entrance Examinations"

1. Purpose
 Under the theme of "Reasonable Accommodation in Entrance Examinations," the purpose of this training is to learn what kind of thinking should be taken into account when considering reasonable accommodation when accepting students with disabilities, including open campuses, university brochures, and application guidelines, and how this will lead to rules and management methods for reasonable accommodation in entrance examinations. In addition, this training is intended not only for the departments in charge of supporting students with disabilities at each university and junior college, but also for faculty and staff belonging to the entrance examination department. With the enactment of the revised Act on the Elimination of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities in May 2021, this will be an opportunity to systematically learn appropriate consideration for prospective students.
