Overview of the business

In fiscal 2018, the name of "Kyoto FD Executive Department's School" was changed to "University Executive Department Juku".

As an organizational initiative for faculty members to improve and improve the content and methods of classes, the University Consortium Kyoto has been promoting FD activities in the Kyoto area together with member universities since 1995, shortly after its establishment.
One of them, the Kyoto FD Executive School, has been held since fiscal 2010 as a study group for university executives, including presidents of member schools of the Foundation.

Under these circumstances, SD became mandatory due to the revision of the Standards for the Establishment of Universities in April 2017, and the university executive staff is required to provide training not only for FD but also for university management in general, and in order to cover themes related to university management in general, this project has also changed its name to "University Executive Department School" in 2018 in order to cover themes related not only to FD but also to university management in general.

Outline of the event

2018 University Executive School

This time, Professor Katsumi Arase of the Faculty of Letters, Otani University, will give a lecture titled "Aims for High School-University Connection Reform ~Based on the Revision of the High School Course of Study~".
Currently, studies are underway to materialize the "High School-University Connection Reform." In particular, university entrance selection reforms, including the Common Test for University Admissions, are attracting strong attention from society. However, the "High School-University Connection Reform" is a comprehensive reform of high school education, university admissions selection, and university education, and when considering university entrance selection reform and university education reform, it is essential to grasp trends in high school education and consider "what kind of skills should be acquired by one young person."
We hope that the executives of member universities and junior colleges will use this as a reference when considering educational reform and admissions selection reform at each school, and we are looking forward to many participants.

Theme Aim
of High School-University Connection Reform ~Based on the Revision of the High School Course of Study~
Overview Regarding the reform of high school-university connection, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) states, "In the reform of high school-university connection, it is extremely important to promote integrated reform of the three parties that steadily cultivate and evaluate the three elements of academic ability through high school education, university education, and university entrance selection, and we are steadily advancing efforts toward these reforms" (MEXT website). In March 2018, the new Course of Study for high schools was announced. Based on this content, I would like to think about what the high school-university connection reform is aiming for.

Implementation Report

On Saturday, June 23, 2018, the University Consortium Kyoto held the "2018 University Executive School." <br /> This year, we will focus on the "high school-university connection reform" that is currently being examined, and with the aim of deepening the thoughts behind the "high school-university connection reform" and the trend of high school education reform among university executives, Professor Katsumi Arase of the Faculty of Letters, who is the director of the High School-University Collaboration Promotion Office of the Foundation, said, Goals of High School-University Connection Reform ~Based on the Revision of the High School Course of Study~", which was attended by 38 people, including the President and Vice President.

In the lecture, he explained how high school education will change in the future, how it is about to change, and how it is changing, while looking at the next high school course of study announced in March 2018. In addition, he presented important perspectives in considering educational curricula to develop each person's abilities and in conducting daily education, and explained the importance of constantly questioning the current situation of one's own university from the perspective of crisis management. At the end, he concluded, "Of the three elements of academic ability, the motivation to learn is something that people are born with, and it is questioned whether there is a curriculum that awakens dormant desire to learn," and the content made us think about how universities can connect learning up to high school to university education and connect it to society in the future.

Participants commented, "It was an information and worldview from a perspective that I could not understand at university," "It was an opportunity to think about the significance and issues of high school-university connection reform again," "I believe that it is important to know the goals of the secondary education curriculum when considering the content of university education, but I was able to learn about the future flow and current problems," "Outline of the new course of study and how high school education is about to change. It was a compact and very easy-to-understand explanation of the latest situation. It was a 'communicative' lecture where you can feel the teacher's passion for education."
