  • Internal Regulation to Promote Internationalization of University
    Shinnosuke Obi
    Professor, Faculty of Science and Technology, Keio University

    It is of great importance for universities to introduce internal regulations which allow flexible student mobility when the promotion of internationalization is considered. Through the activity of EBA Consortium, a new status for international student has been settled, so that students can come and leave at any time regardless of the academic calendar. For Japanese students to leave during the study at the university, the problems due to discrepancy in academic calendar could be partially resolved by introducing four-term system. The appropriate design of such regulation should be conducted in accordance with the global picture of the academic activities in consortium to avoid local optimization.

  • Curriculum and Credits System for University International Collaboration
    Keisuke Uehara
    Associate Professor, Faculty of Environment and Information Studies, Keio University

    EBA consortium is established to train students collaboratively among universities and countries. However, there are some barriers, academic years, curriculum and so on. EBA consortium introduced certificate program to solve curriculum issues, remote conference system to solve joint education and so on. In addition, Keio University started new system to give official credits. As the result, students now can use credits and certificates from the consortium to prove his/her skills.

  • Evidence Based Approach (EBA)
    - An Innovation in Higher Education
    Vu Le Thao Chi
    Project Assistant Professor, Faculty of Policy Management, Keio University

    Mass education is to create standardized men (citizens) through universal institutions -- formal schools -- for building a nation-state. Higher education is expected to follow this to meet the nation's higher demand for the individuals of outstanding quality. The Evidence Based Approach, more than a trainingin-research method, is an innovative response to the demand for upgrading the quality of learning at higher education. EBA promotes two-way interactions between teachers and students through distinctly different learning environments of conventional classrooms, a cyberspace, and the "field," the living environments in Asia. By going through these environments, students have an excellent opportunity to learn through a best mix of the "mediated" knowledge (from teachers) and the "experienced" knowledge (by themselves).

    When addressing Internet of Things [IoT], two strategies are available: open and closed. Home appliances to be key devices on IoT have adopted a closed strategy for many years. However, we can observe the new aspects that 1) home appliances with the open interface named ECHONET Lite make up Home Energy Management System [HEMS] which enables peak demand control of energy usage and 2) industry-academic cooperation in ASEAN plays the important role of spreading the open technologies such as ECHONET Lite through providing the platform which facilitates the engineers at the higher educational institutions in ASEAN.
    In driving open technology, the role of university which educates engineers, makes feasibility study to ensure interoperability of the entire system, and creates regulations for social deployment of new technology, is important. The case of the internet innovation in 1990s told that education and empirical study in university were mandatory of increasing awareness to open technology such as TCP/IP and HTML.
    EBA Business Fieldwork that we discuss on this paper has created the platform which enables of cooperating among four different parties who are motivated by IoT: student, university, company, and government. Through reviewing EBA Business Fieldwork, we highlight the embryonic movement in which 1) universities support to deploy open technology on IoT and 2) companies provide students with field work opportunities as same as scholarships.

  • Efforts for EBA Japanese Language Course via Video Conferencing and Future Tasks
    Kuniko Matsumoto
    Project Research Associate, Graduate School of Media and Governance, Keio University

    "University Consortium for Evidence Based Approach to the Emerging Issues in Asia" was adopted as "Inter-University Exchange Project" sponsored by the Ministry of Education in 2012. In this project, Japanese language course via video conferencing had been conducted for three years. This paper starts with a brief review of preparations and efforts for this language course in fiscal 2014 to clarify some problems in it. Several attempts made in the following two years are subsequently presented. Finally, the future tasks are discussed after looking back on several efforts in the past three years.

    University collaborations, such as credit transfer and double degree programs, with foreign universities are important for better educational environment. Tele communication technologies makes it possible to collaborate without travelling to other campuses. Therefore, remote lecture or video conference are used frequently in today's university collaborations. Demand for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) are increasing. In this paper, we will discuss the evolution of SFC's tele communication environment and use cases.

    In this paper, I examine the impact of EBA workshops, which are specifically designed for a multinational and multi disciplinary students enrolled in EBA Consortium, where community members are geographically distributed throughout Japan and the ASEAN region. Each EBA workshop is customized for EBA Fieldwork, a program where students and staffs from member universities gather for a 10-day fieldtrip to find and solve emerging issues in Asia. Alongside the fieldwork, EBA workshop functions to enrich the fieldwork experience by introducing learning programs before and after the field trip. This paper explores and evaluates 25 EBA fieldworks and the analysis is conducted based on surveys, interviews received from the students.

  • Chinese Policy towards Japan during the Early Days of the PRC (1954-1956)
    - A Review from an Anti-America Point of View
    Shu Lian
    Part-time Lecturer, Faculty of Policy Management, Keio University

    This study is about Chinese policy towards Japan from 1954 to 1956. China tried to establish normal relations with Japan in order to make Japan take neutralized position between China and the US. To reach this goal, China put into practice an active economic policy and released Japanese war criminals in order to get the Japanese people's support. Chinese policy towards Japan at the time was conducted as one of its countermoves towards the US. Download this Article (PDF) 19pages/1.56MB/Japanese
  • The Process by Which Japanese High School Students Decide to Participate in an Exchange Program between English-Speaking-Countries and Japan
    - Cases When Students Choose the USA
    Aya Iwamoto
    Part-time Lecturer, School of General Education, Shinshu University / Senior Researcher, Keio Research Institute at SFC

    This study describes the process by which Japanese high school students decide to participate in an exchange program to the USA. 10 university students who were exchange students to the USA during high school were interviewed. The data was analyzed with the Modified Grounded Theory Approach. The study found that the two major motivations were <planning backwards from one's international career vision> and <Western English-speaking-country orientation based on one's previous experiences>. Furthermore, the study found that these maybe affected by <freedom from the norm that prioritizes entrance exams>, and then develop towards the <decision to go to the USA during high school>. Support measures promoting exchange programs are discussed. Download this Article (PDF) 25pages/1.63MB/Japanese
  • "Hospitality Method by Providing Information": Promoting De-Certification of Halal
    - Cases of the Fukuoka Masjid, the Nagoya Mosque, and the Laboratory of Islamic Studies at Keio University
    Keisuke Toda
    Senior Researcher, Keio Research Institute at SFC

    While "halal" and halal certification have gradually gained attention in Japan owing to increasing Muslim tourists, there is an emerging movement to promote the hospitality method without relying on this certification. This study focuses on this movement by analyzing the cases of the Fukuoka Masjid, the Nagoya Mosque, and the Laboratory of Islamic Studies at Keio University. Their activities can be called "Hospitality Method by Providing Information" and constitute attempts at making "halal" suitable for the teaching of Islam as well as for the Japanese context. The hospitality method can benefit both companies and consumers.
