Keynote Speech
Policy Directions and Challenges of High School-University Connection Reform: Toward the Establishment of a "Relay of Learning"

Mr. Tetsuo Goda (Cabinet Counselor, 100-Year Life Era Initiative Promotion Office, Cabinet Secretariat / Former Director, Curriculum Division, Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports,
Science and Technology)

Five years have passed since the comprehensive reform of high school education, university entrance examinations, and university education to establish a "relay of learning" through K-16 education was proposed in the report of the Central Council for Education in 2012. I would like to consider the policy direction and challenges for this.
Case Report
Learning Support for Students in Need of Support at Private Universities and Future Issues
: Fostering Active Learners

Terumi Samejima (Lecturer, Department of Nursing, Faculty of Health Sciences, Kyoto Koka Women's University)

In response to the need to provide high-quality learning suitable for each student with diverse academic abilities, the university opened a "Learning Station" specializing in learning support in 2014. This time, we will introduce the learning support efforts of learning support teachers and full-time teachers, and consider the social meaning of "creating a place of belonging" for students in need of support. Furthermore, from this initiative, I would like to think about how to foster "active learners" from high school to university.
"Learning Ability" to Ensure Learning and Growth: A Reconsideration of Curriculum Design from Theory and Practice

Terumasa Ikeda (Professor, Director, Institute for Basic Education, Otemon Gakuin University)

Is the school curriculum functioning? Judging this question from a social index called "class comprehension," related surveys show that the number of people who "do not understand classes" increases as the grades of elementary and junior high schools increase, and in high schools, the number of people who "do not understand classes" increases, and in high schools it exceeds 50%. The reality is that the curriculum is not functioning, but it is the curriculum that guarantees learning and growth as a person. We should move away from the debate on fostering "academic ability" in entrance examinations away from this. This report proposes the "ability to learn" that guarantees learning and growth.
12:30~13:30 〈Rest〉
Panel Floor Discussion
Panel & Floor Discussion

Panelists: Tetsuo Goda, Terumi Samejima, Terumasa
Ikeda Coordinator: Yoichi Tsutsui (Former Professor, Faculty of Humanities, Kyoto Seika University)

We will think about "what kind of skills should be fostered now," including exchanging opinions with the participants on the floor.

【Part 2】15:15~17:15 Breakout Session

1 [Expression Techniques]
that proactively find "questions" and aim for deep learning: Questions found by students from questions asked by teachers

Presenter Yoshihiro Izumi (Teacher, Iwate Prefectural Yamada High School) Coordinator and Presenter Yoichi Tsutsui (Former Professor, Faculty of Humanities, Kyoto Seika University)

In the past, presenters have presented "open questions" at the beginning of the class, that is, questions that anyone can answer and can derive diverse answers, and then presented and shared "central questions." However, this time, we have begun to practice methods that elicit questions from the students' side and deepen independent learning, focusing on sovereign education. The presenter would like to present the significance and issues of class practice and deepen interaction with the floor. As was the case last year, in addition to the subcommittee participants, online participants via Zoom are also scheduled to participate in the discussion.
Session 2
Exchange efforts for smooth high school-university collaboration

Presenter Takayuki Yamawaki (Teacher, Department of Mathematics, Kyoto Gakuen Junior and Senior High School) Presenter Mitsuru Kawazoe (Professor, Osaka Prefecture University Institute for the Promotion of Higher Education) Coordinator Tsuyoshi Sonoda (Teacher, Department of Mathematics, Doshisha Junior High School)


I would like to exchange information and opinions frankly about initiatives and issues to smoothly connect high school to university learning.
Aiming to Cultivate Rich Expressiveness and Communicative Skills: English Classes Focusing on Performance Evaluation

Presenter Tamako Suzuki (Teacher, Kyoto Prefectural Nishiotokuni High School) Presenter Mayo Akasawa (Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, Osaka Seikei University) Coordinator Mr. Goki Fujita (Supervisor, High School Education Division, Kyoto Prefectural Board of Education)

In this subcommittee, we will report on the performance tasks and rubric-centered performance evaluations that Kyoto Prefectural Nishiotokuni High School is working on with the aim of fostering rich expressiveness and communication skills, deepen our insight into the performance tasks and performance evaluations currently required for English instruction, and deepen exchanges with participants about their significance and challenges.
4 [Science]
The power to think once again, and the power to come from independent learning

Presenter Nao Takada (Teacher, Horikawa High School, Kyoto City) Presenter Tetsuhide Shino (Professor, Faculty of Letters, Ryukoku University, Kyoto University of Education United Graduate School of Teacher Training) Coordinator Mamoru Taniguchi (Deputy Chief Supervisor, School Guidance Division,
Kyoto City Board of Education)

The new Course of Study requires "proactive, interactive, and deep learning," and how to realize "deep learning" is attracting particular attention. The starting point for realization is "independence," which has long been used as a keyword for learning. In order to deepen what kind of power can be derived from "independent learning" once again in the period of learning change, we would like to discuss it based on the practice at Horikawa High School and the reports of the situation at Kyoto Institute of Technology, Ryukoku University, and Kyoto University of Education.
Special Subcommittee (1)
[Development of Admission Specialists]
Admissions Specialist Skill Development Course

Presenter Dai Nishigun (Professor, Admission Center, Saga University) Presenter Takuya Kimura (Associate Professor, Department of Education, Faculty of Human-Environment Studies, Kyushu University) Coordinator Yowako Yamamoto (Associate Professor, Department of Basic Sciences, Kyoto Institute of Technology)


In accordance with the development of entrance examination content and evaluation methods in the entrance examination reform, the development of admission specialists and skill development are required at the High School-University Connection System Conference, etc., including the High School-University Connection Report. In this subcommittee, university faculty and high school faculty members in charge of entrance examinations and career paths will be given lectures on essential knowledge and evaluation methods related to admissions for the development of highly specialized human resources in the field of high school-university connectivity.
Lecture 1 Introduction
to Admissions Officers Lecture 2 Theory and Practice
of Comprehensive and Multifaceted Evaluation *This subcommittee will be held jointly with the Center for the Development of Education for the Next Generation, Kyushu University.
Special Subcommittee (2)
[Career Education in Collaboration with High School-University Companies]
Necessity and Issues of High School-University Collaboration: Who will create the environment in which students can grow?

Presenter Mr. Masaki Tanaka (Director of Planning and Promotion Department, Kyoto Prefectural Toba High School< > in charge of SGH) Presenter Ayumu Osaka (Representative Director, Taisei Printing & Paper Industry Co., Ltd. /
Secretary of the Kyoto Association of Small and Medium Enterprises) Coordinator and Presenter Hideki Sugioka (Associate Professor, Faculty of Regional Management, Fukuchiyama Public University)

In order to promote the reform of the high school-university connection system, it is important for each high school and university to clearly grasp the qualities and abilities necessary for the young people who will lead the next generation, share the issues to develop them from both perspectives, and accumulate reforms. The same can be said for career education.
Therefore, in this subcommittee, in addition to high school teachers, high school students, university teachers, and university students who are engaged in career education through high school university collaboration in their respective sectors, working adults (managers) will take the stage to discuss the "necessity and issues of high school university collaboration" from the other side.

Implementation Report

The 15th High School-University Collaborative Education Forum Report Collection 【Click here for details】

 This year's event was held under the overall theme of "Thinking Together about the Skills We Should Develop Now ~The Role of High Schools and Universities~," and 210 people from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south participated.
In the keynote speech, Mr. Tetsuo Goda, Cabinet Counsellor of the 100-Year Life Era Promotion Office, Cabinet Secretariat and former Director of the Curriculum Division of the Bureau of Elementary and Secondary Education, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, gave a lecture titled "Policy Directions and Issues of High School-University Connection Reform: Toward the Establishment of a 'Relay of Learning'", and as a case report, Ms. Terumi Samejima, Lecturer of the Department of Nursing, Faculty of Health Sciences, Kyoto Koka Women's University, Mr. Terumasa Ikeda, Director of the Institute for Basic Education, Assistant to the President, and Professor of Otemon Gakuin University, took the stage.

 In the afternoon panel floor discussion, the main point of discussion was "What are the skills that should be fostered now ~The role of high schools and universities~", and participants deepened the discussion while exchanging ideas from both high schools and universities while discussing in groups.

 In the second part, the participants were divided into six subcommittees: expression techniques, mathematics, English, science, admission specialist training, and high school-university collaborative career education, and information sharing and lively exchanges of opinions were held on each theme.

 In the questionnaire after the event, a high school teacher said, "It is difficult to take on new initiatives, but I strongly felt that we should change our guidance as society changes." (High school teacher) "I want to scrutinize my teaching style again" (university teacher), and through keynote speeches, case reports, panel floor discussions, and each subcommittee, they seemed to have gained various insights and learnings.

In addition, nine students, mainly aspiring teachers, cooperated in the operation as volunteer staff. After the meeting, they summarized what they noticed throughout the forum and what they would like to make use of in the future. Here are some of them.

Yushi Fukuda (Bukkyo University, 3rd year)
At the symposium, the lecturer asked me to take it home to the venue as homework, and it made me think a lot, "Is my classroom or class a place or relationship where I can say 'I don't know' with peace of mind?" Japan students tend not to ask questions during class and to ask questions privately after class, probably because they are always worried that other students will laugh at them for asking questions that are off the mark. In order to eliminate such anxiety among students, teachers must be willing to create an atmosphere in which it is easy to actively ask questions, and for that purpose, I felt that it is important to value relationships with students on a daily basis and build good relationships.


Chihiro Minato (Otani University, 3rd year)
What I learned through this forum is that "igniting a fire in children's hearts is a job that only people can do."
I was amazed by the talk about the digital revolution in the lecture. Certainly, it may be possible for AI to take the place of teachers with the tremendous development of modern technology. However, I learned again that education is not just about memorizing students, but about nurturing the minds of students and growing with them. In the teaching practice in the fourth year, I would like to find my own idea of education in my daily life with students.
