The JAISE-KAIE Joint Seminar—Developing Future International Student Exchange—took place

The JAISE-KAIE Joint Seminar took place at Hakusan Campus, Toyo University on November 1, 2018. In cooperation with the UMAP (University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific), this seminar was jointly hosted by Toyo University and the JAISE (Japan Association for International Student Education), along with inviting special guests from the KAIE (Korean Association of International Educators). Nearly 50 people who work for higher education institutions and educational companies attended the seminar. 

Under the seminar theme, Developing Future International Student Exchange, various informative presentations were given, covering specific topics such as policy reviews and issues as well as innovative efforts and programs in both Japan and Korea. Throughout the seminar, lively discussion continued between attendees and presenters, and the understanding of situations and challenges in international student exchange were deepened. Moreover, it was a valuable opportunity for participants to revisit policy implementations of their countries and practices of their institutions by acquiring knowledge about differences and similarities of governance, management, and policy between the two countries in international education.
