Implementation Report

The 19th FD Forum Report [Click here for details]

On February 22 (Sat) ~ 23 (Sun), the 19th FD Forum was held at Ryukoku University’s Fukakusa Campus.

This project is based on the “Basic Plan for the Promotion of Education” ( June 2013), one of the basic directions of the conference, was held with the participation of 832 participants from 290 universities and institutions nationwide, with the theme of how universities can cultivate the ability to survive in society.


On the first day, Symposium I, titled “Learning Communities for the Whole Community: Creating a Society that Grows and Learns Together,” presented practical practices and issues for the creation of local learning communities from the standpoint of university teachers, university students, local government officials, and MEXT officials.


In Symposium II, under the theme of “Nurturing Students Who Will Open Up the Future,” university faculty members and NPOs made presentations on the sharing of the current situation, the practices to respond to it, and the mechanism of issue arise, based on the “issue of declining academic ability” and “the problem of dropouts,” which are serious issues at universities.


On the second day, 13 subcommittees were held on various themes surrounding university education, such as “Open Education,” “Learning Support for University Libraries,” “Lesson Design,” “Experiential Learning,” “Writing Instruction,” and “Learning Support for Developmental Disabilities,” and other topics covered by the participants in the field. The “Poster Session” was a great success, with a total of 13 “Educational Practice Examples” exhibited by 9 member schools of the Consortium, and many questions and comments were raised by the participants about each practice, and there was a scene where the presenters and participants actively interacted.

Participants have requested forums on the themes of “promotion of FD through collaboration between faculty and staff (collaboration between teachers),” “first-year education,” “career education,” and “student and learning support” as future projects, and expectations are high for the next forum, which will be the 20th milestone.
