*[Special Feature 2] Citizenship Education Practice [Region x Educational Innovation] Aomori Prefecture: Educational reform that breaks precedent*
The Publishing Department of Japan Advanced Educational Corporation (Minato-ku, Tokyo, Chairman: Hideya Higashi), which operates the Graduate University for Business Initiatives and the Graduate University for Social Initiatives, which are professional graduate schools for working adults, is publishing a monthly magazine specializing in education that connects society and recurrent. The May 2024 issue of “Advanced Education” was released on April 1st (Monday). ( )

* [Special Feature 1] Arousing motivation for reskilling: Creating an organization where employees can “self-develop”*
Although interest in reskilling is increasing, currently only a small number of business people are taking up reskilling. Various surveys have shown that only a select group of motivated business people strive for self-improvement outside the company and outside of working hours, and the reality is that most of the learning is done in the workplace. Additionally, as the mobility of human resources increases, a major challenge is how to retain the results of “investment in people” within the company and link “individual growth” to
“organizational growth.” This special feature examines human resource development from the perspective of “organizational building” and “work environment,” rather than relying solely on individual efforts. We will introduce the conditions for establishing a “mutual learning organization,” the “work environment” that fosters employees’ desire to learn, the creation of innovation, and creative team learning models.

*Senior Principal Researcher Yuji Kobayashi*
≪Key phrase≫
“Reskilling that relies on individuals will not last, so it is important to create opportunities for community learning. For example, an in-house university could be a good opportunity.”

* -Learning behavior is promoted in an “open workplace”/*
*Ryuta Suzuki, Professor, Graduate School of Business Administration, Kobe University*
≪Key phrase≫
“The more open the workplace is, the more new information comes in from outside the workplace and the more diverse information is available, the more learning behavior will be promoted. Leaders and managers should actively work to create an “open workplace.” I have to.”
