Last Meeting - Quick Report

Sept. 27 - Bern Mulvey: Numbers Game: How Accreditation, Kaken-Hi and the “SUPER GLOBAL” Program are Changing Japan’s Universities

Bern gave an OUTSTANDING overview of the initiatives Monkasho has undertaken in an attempt to improve Japanese universities and make them more competitive with institutions around the world, and the journey—sometimes helpful, sometimes bizarre—this has led our universities on.  If you're a university educator, you're already kicking yourself for missing this session. But good news, Bern's PPT slides are available on our Media & Downloads page. Thanks Bern!
