Takashi Yasuoka (Professor, Ritsumeikan University Educational Development Promotion Organization)
The state in which educational management is smoothly implemented is when an organization sets clear achievement goals, evaluation indicators, and evaluation criteria, conducts work (education) while always being aware of these goals, and evaluates results according to evaluation indicators and standards, which is generally called the PDCA cycle.
In the first Kyoto FDer Juku this year, we will explain how to set the four goals to be determined in the PDCA cycle plan, action goals, evaluation indicators, and evaluation criteria, and review the ideal form of our organization.

At Kyoto Sangyo University, faculty and staff members of the Educational Development Support Center regularly visit the executive offices of each faculty in collaboration with each faculty to communicate and promote understanding of the policies of the university executives, listen to the requests of the faculty, and provide feedback to the executive department. We will ask them to provide examples of how they started this middle-up and down initiative, which is called "around the faculty," their awareness of the issues, the knowledge gained through the initiative, and future issues, and discuss the issues and solutions of how to communicate between executives and the field in their own organization.

【Panel Discussion】

In recent years, the importance of "educational management" that organically connects various educational initiatives and resources in promoting university reform has been attracting attention.
We will reaffirm the "meaning" and "role" of the question of "educational management" in current university education, and discuss how to build an effective educational management system based on case studies of university consortium Kyoto member schools, taking into account regional characteristics, scale, and form of establishment.

In the group work, participants were divided into three groups and discussed "Current Status and Issues of Intra-University Collaboration" and "Current Issues of Teacher-Professional Collaboration."

Each group commented, "It is important for faculty and staff not to work alone, but to work together while fully communicating with each other while recognizing each other's roles," and "Even in the problems to be tackled by faculty and profession collaboration, it is necessary to set specific issues and goals, and each faculty member and staff member needs to set specific action goals necessary to achieve them and work together." Opinions such as these were expressed.
