Implementation Report

The 21st FD Forum Report Collection [Click here for details]

On March 5 and 6, 2016, "The 21st FD Forum: Rethinking University Education ~Shape Seen from Imadoki~" was held at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies.

In recent years, the state of university education has been intensely questioned and qualitative transformation is required, sandwiched between the diversification of learning histories due to the declining birthrate and universalization, the severe problems of university management (entrance), and the changes in the employment environment due to globalization and informatization (exit). In addition, policy pressure is imposed on third-party evaluations, mandatory FD, disclosure of educational information, financial support based on the principle of competition, and various quality assurance measures overflowing from reports issued in rapid succession. While we are busy dealing with these issues, we will reconsider the state of university education, such as how students learn and grow (student theory), how education develops in relation to the community and society (educational theory / academic theory), and how universities (organizations) contribute to the realization of students' learning and happiness (organization theory, staff theory). It was a successful event with the participation of 832 people from 293 universities and institutions nationwide.

On the first day, presentations were given from different standpoints from national, public, and private universities, administrators, faculty members, and staff, as well as inside and outside the university. In the panel discussion and floor discussion that followed, lively exchanges of opinions and discussions were held from both speakers and participants based on the keyword of full participation.

On the second day, 13 subcommittees were held on themes of great interest to university educators, such as "Student Growth Brought About by Community Contribution Out-campus Activities," "Exploring Sustainable First-Year Education," "How to Deal with Students Who Can't Find the Opportunity to Learn," and "Understanding Students Unraveled from the Trend of High School-University Connection Reform." The "Poster Session" held at the same time, which exhibited a total of 17 "educational practice cases" from 10 member schools of the consortium, and the "Company Booth" exhibited by 7 companies were very successful, and there were many questions and impressions from the participants, and there were scenes of active exchange.
