Keynote Speeches
Theme: Changes in society and the economy and changes in the type of person required
Speaker: Dr. Shinji Kirimura (Distinguished Visiting Professor, Kanagawa University)
In response to changes in the situation such as economic growth, technological innovation, and fluctuations in the economies of Japan, the United States, and Europe, the way of promoting skill development in society is shifting from the method of emulating superiors and seniors to the systematization and standardization of in-house training, and to human resource development measures that are “employee autonomous, company-supportive.”
School education has also been greatly affected by globalization and advances in information technology, and the new curriculum aims to (1) acquire basic and fundamental knowledge and skills, (2) solve problems through the ability to think and make decisions by utilizing them, and (3) cultivate an attitude of independent learning.
In order to develop talented human resources in society through collaboration between high schools and universities, I would like to proceed with the discussion with specific examples of what should be kept in mind and what kind of ingenuity is required.
