Supporting high-level professionals who continue to learn – Turning daily challenges into learning material

The objective of this course is to support high-level professionals who continue to learn. The main four fields of this course are school education, educational psychology and educational counseling, life-long learning and social education, and special needs education.

The students that have taken this course until present have come from various backgrounds such as, teachers from kindergarten, elementary, junior high, high school, special needs schools, and universities, as well as nurses, nursing school and nursing university teachers, physical therapists, employees of NPOs, company HR staff, and local community volunteers. In this course, these students carried out practical research that led to improvement or a change in their approach, of problems they have in their workplace, local area, or in the course of their lives. This is because, for adult learning, daily challenges are genuine learning material. Also, after course completion, we return students to society with their research findings and the ability to continue learning.

Symbolized by technology such as AI and regenerative medicine, the 21st century is being called the era of the fourth industrial revolution. Amidst unpredictable change, with education as a common field, together with people that come from various backgrounds, won’t you consider: why people learn? How to interact with society through learning? And, what is living together supporting one another?

Additionally, in this course, you can obtain a Specialized Teacher’s Certificate of junior high, high, special needs, and elementary schools. Also, we have entrance exams targeted at working people and a day/evening curriculum. The education course supports professionals who continue to learn.

 

Overview of the Course

This course is comprised of four fields: school education, educational psychology and educational counseling, life-long learning and social education, and special needs education.

What is unique about this course is that based on problems or doubts that you have in your situation or workplace, you can perform practical research that leads to the improvement of these issues.

We have made the course so that students, for example, teachers of various schools from pre-primary to high school education, those involved in the training of staff or development of junior employees at the local, company, or workplace level, can continue to study and research while working.

As of April 2012, it became possible to acquire an Elementary School Specialized Teacher’s Certificate.
