Campus Asia Plus

Summer School in Hiroshima
23-31 August 2022

International Collaborative Human Resources Development Program in Asia to Foster Inclusive Minds

Application Guidelines
(Last update: May 16, 2022)


To solve common social issues in the world, it is necessary to collaborate with diverse human resources with different backgrounds and attributes, regardless of nationality, language, religion, gender, or disability. And the practice of Diversity and Inclusion in society is required to realize the basic principle of the SDGs, “Leave No One Behind.”

As you already know, with this background, we have launched a new program titled “International Collaborative Human Resources Development Program in Asia to Foster Inclusive Minds” implemented by Campus Asia consortium universities in China, Korea and Japan plus two universities from Indonesia and Thailand from 2022.

Our very first Program, “Cultivating a Caring and Inclusive Society for All,” which was designed to develop human resources collaboratively among the universities to foster an inclusive mindset in students was successfully done online in February 2022. The program was to contribute to the practice of Diversity and Inclusion for the realization of the better society and the SDGs in Asia.

To pursue and accomplish this purpose in the Campus Asia program further, Hiroshima University has been planning the contents and itineraries for our Summer School program, which offers students from the Consortium Universities can interact, communicate and learn at Hiroshima University.
Hiroshima University welcomes students from the member universities, who are eager to learn and interact actively with other Asian students in August 2022.

This Summer School is designed for highly motivated students from Campus ASIA consortium universities. Students who are willing to challenge this intensive, academic and cultural program are expected. We also welcome students:
  • who are interested in cross-cultural understanding,
  • who want to improve their English language skills,
  • who are thinking about studying abroad,
  • who are interested in diversity and inclusion, and

  • cooperativeness in teambuilding
The Summer School program features:

WORKSHOP on Aug 26
Description: Introductions of 4 different laboratories related to communication technology will be given in the morning, and the students will discuss application of the technologies, efficacy, future perspectives, etc., in the brainstorming session in the afternoon. All the 24 students meet at K213 lecture room at School of Education, Hiroshima University on site or online. They will virtually visit 4 different communication related laboratories via online tools:
  1. Use of ultrasound in pronunciation studies (Prof. Yamane)
Intelligible pronunciation skill – often neglected aspect in language classrooms – plays a vital role in successful communication. 1 will provide images and movies that enable the audience to understand how linguistic sounds are shaped and perceived. Some sounds are challenging to learn, but an ultrasound technology helps us to visualize the tongue movements in speech research and for pedagogical use in the acguisition of LI/L2 pronunciation. Case studies will be introduced.
  1. Cognitive aspects of diversity in foreign language learning (Prof. Yanamoto)
How do humans perceive and understand foreign languages? In second language learning situations, even when learning in the same way, different cognitive abilities and features can lead to differences in the impact on individual comprehension and acguisition. This discussion will consider teaching for diversity through the individual cognitive features of foreign language learning.
  1. Cultural and religious diversity (Prof. Delakorda Kawashima)
Educational efforts to develop understanding and cooperation in increasingly international Japanese society concentrate on Japanese language acguisition. People’s diverse cultural and religious backgrounds are mostly ignored, undermining the acceptance of diversity. We need to widen our horizons beyond the “assimilative” approach if we are to address problems underlying suspicion and conflict between people of different (religious and non-religious) beliefs.
  1. Learning engineering (Prof. Hirashima)
Learning Engineering (LE) is a research field that focuses on providing Information Technology to improve learning (Technology Enhanced Learning). The technology used can be in the form of existing or newly created technologies. The main purpose of this technology is to provide tools that can help students to be more focus, understand, analyze, evaluate, and monitor their learning process and provide tools that can be used by teachers to understand, analyze, evaluate and provide feedback to their students.
