Keynote Speech
Theme: Changes in society and the economy and the image of the
person required Speaker:Shinji Kirimura (Distinguished Guest 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 a method of emulating superiors and seniors to a "self-reliant and corporate support" human resource development policy through the systematization and standardization of in-house education.
School education has also been greatly influenced by globalization and the progress of 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) foster an attitude of independent learning.
In order to develop human resources who can be useful in society through high school-university collaboration, I would like to proceed with discussions with specific examples on what should be paid attention to and what kind of ingenuity is required.
