Business summary

In 2018, “Kyoto FD Executive School” changed its name to “University Executive School.”

Since 1995, shortly after its establishment, the University Consortium Kyoto has been promoting FD activities in the Kyoto area with member universities as an organizational effort for teachers to improve and improve class content and methods.
This project has been held since 2010 as a study session for university executives, including presidents of our member schools.
During this time, SD was made compulsory due to the revision of the University Establishment Standards in April 2017, and training not only in FD but also in general university management is required for university executives. In 2018, the name was changed to “University Executive School” in order to cover themes related to overall university management.

Overview of the event

This time, the 13th time, we invited Mr. Tatsuo Kawashima, specially appointed professor of Osaka University and director of the Student Life Cycle Support Center, to give a lecture entitled “University entrance examinations and university education in post-high school-university connection reform”. I’ll enjoy having this.
I would like to invite all of you at each university and junior college to deepen your thoughts about university entrance examinations and university education in the midst of the progress of high school and university connection reforms through this executive cram school.

theme “University entrance examinations and university education in post-high school-university connection reform”
The discussion on the reform of connecting high schools and universities, which has continued for more than 10 years, has come to a halt with the implementation of the 1st Common Test for University Admissions in January 2021.
However, not only will the 18-year-old population plummet, but high school students who have studied under the new high school curriculum guidelines will enter college in 2025. In addition, in an era where society itself is rapidly becoming DX, and VUCA is becoming the norm, university entrance examinations and university education will need to undergo major changes. I would like to discuss with the participants what university entrance exams and university education should be in the near future.
