Keywords:Qualities and competencies, Competency-based curriculum, Active learning, Authentic learning, Do a subject, Performance assessment
In this lecture, I first outline the development of competency-based curriculum reform in Japan and summarize both its perceived problems as well as its potential. Next, I raise some key points aimed at encouraging a positive direction in competency-based curriculum reform. Finally, I propose a framework for categorising and structuring qualities and competencies that should be developed at school. And I propose the following direction of reform in curriculum and instruction of school subjects: It is necessary to emphasize the process of ‘doing a subject’ toward authentic learning.
