Okayama JALT:

University Accreditation: How it Impacts You

Date: Sunday, November 14th, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Bern Mulvey

All universities in Japan must now submit to an external "accreditation" evaluation every seven years. They receive assessment in multiple categories, not to mention grades: pass, probation, and fail. This presentation examines the ramifications of--and opportunities afforded by--this requirement, from the unfortunate (e.g., the often ill-conceived expansion of on campus "Faculty Development") to the hopeful (including possibly better education...and more tenure opportunities for foreign faculty).
