APU Chosen for the 2005 Program for the Promotion of Internationalization of University Education

Aug 3, 2005

In July, APU was chosen to receive the 2005 Program for the Promotion of Internationalization of University Education (Advanced Overseas Education Project Grant).

The Ministry of Education (MEXT) began accepting applications for the grant in June 2005. The purpose of the grant is to advance the international recognition of Japan's higher education by sending university faculty and staff to educational and research institutions abroad. Participants gain skills and learn about new and better educational content and methods, which in turn, can be used to promote reforms to the higher education system in Japan.

Applications were submitted by 101 universities, junior colleges and technical colleges. Of those, 19 were chosen, including APU.
Project Name:
Global Active Learning
(Developing Educational Programs to Link Knowledge, Experience and Exchange)

Project Outline:
One of the key developments in the Curriculum Reforms for 2006 is Global Active Learning, an educational system that allows for on-site participatory learning. Considering that nearly half of the student body is international students, this program shall take advantage of our multicultural and multilingual atmosphere allowing Japanese and international students to study together overseas in an effort to foster knowledge, experience and exchange.

To further develop these educational programs at APU, we will provide support to faculty and staff members sent overseas to survey those schools that are on the cutting edge of Active Learning.
