From Resistance to Resolution: The Journey towards a Sustainable Vision of Continuing Education in Japan
Mulvey, Bern
Continuing Higher Education Review, v76 p122-137 Fall 2012
Even before 2011's 9.1-magnitude earthquake and the devastating 15-meter tsunami that followed, Japan had been struggling with tremendous economic and demographic challenges that had forced significant changes to its tertiary education sector. In particular, these challenges had played a crucial role in the development of Japanese continuing education. Accordingly, this article will begin with an explanation of the cultural, economic, and demographic contexts in which Japan-style continuing education evolved, followed by a discussion of the present situation and possibilities for the future.
