はじめに Overview

2020年に猛威を振るう新型コロナ禍の影響で、国際教育交流は大きな転換点を迎えており、業務を推進する教員のFD、職員の育成・トレーニング(SD)も喫緊の課題となっています。こうした状況をふまえて、大学国際化を支える教職員のための研究大会を以下のように実施いたします。今年で3回目を迎える本研究大会は、「一般社団法人 国際教育研究コンソーシアム」が主催し、BRIDGE Institute、科研費プロジェクトなどが企画に協力する形で行われます。

The internationalization of universities has become a central topic for our society. However, the fostering of globally-minded talent, international student recruitment and admissions, internationalization of the campus environment and curriculum, and analysis of study abroad program outcomes have all stalled in recent years. As the COVID-19 pandemic has created a critical juncture in international education, it is now all the more important that we train and support the faculty and mid-level staff tasked with moving this work forward. Therefore, we are holding various workshops and sessions for the staff members and faculty who underpin university internationalization. This project is organized by the Research Consortium for the Sustainable Promotion of International Education (RECSIE) and held in cooperation with Kansai University IIGE (Institute for Innovative Global Education) and Toyo University.

We look forward to seeing you in Japan this summer.

About the Kansai Region

The Kansai area, 500km west of Tokyo, is the heart of Japanese culture and history. Home to the ancient capitals of Kyoto and Nara as well as the industrial port cities of Kobe and Osaka, legacies of the past are intertwined with the impulses of progress and modernization.

In times past, Kyoto and the older capital, Nara, were the repositories of religion, knowledge, technology, and civilization that reached Japan by way of the Silk Road. Osaka has been the biggest commerce center since the Edo period (1603-1868), pioneering in futures trade and giving birth to many large trading houses that would provide the social capital for rapid industrialization in the Meiji era (1868 – 1912). Even though the capital has moved to Tokyo, Kansai continues to flourish in this rich cultural heritage and tradition of innovative thinking, as a place where East mingles with the West over time and space in ways that Tokyo cannot match.


About SIIEJ and RECSIE

“Breaking through the borders of individual universities and promoting research”

We at RECSIE have organized an annual conference, the Summer Institute on International Education, Japan (SIIEJ), since 2018. The conference offers a variety of training sessions and seminars for faculty and administrative staff whose work underpins university internationalization. SIIEJ 2020, our third conference, will welcome Fiona Hunter, Kuniaki Sato and Chikara Funabashi as keynote speakers and bring together participants from throughout Japan and abroad. Over the course of various workshops and sessions, participants will exchange views and gain the most up-to-date knowledge in the field of international education. An additional goal of the conference is to build networks of personal contact which span boundaries between individual universities.
