学修の到達目標/Goal of Study

This course aims to explore the issues of universities and students in the process of globalization by examining the case of Japan. The course is designed to encourage students to develop constructive views on the issues and draw comparisons between educational practices of university systems and attitudes and behaviors of university students in Japan and their home country.

The three learning objectives of this course are:

1. Understand the issues tied to globalization and how these issues may impact universities and their students in Japan, your home country, and other countries

2. Learn about the perspectives held by those living and working outside your home country and of the impact their views have on higher education

3. Conduct group projects and present major findings to the class

To achieve those learning objectives, different types of learning activities will be employed, including lectures, guest speakers, discussions, and interviews.
