Instructor’s outlook on “Human Resource Administration” advanced level course

    I presented a business course on “Human Resource Administration” from October 12th through 14th. The course was designed for graduates of Business training course as a supplemental practice.
        Human Resource (HR) includes many areas; it is complex yet still covers labor managing, resource determining, rewarding incentives and development of HR. Most importantly, they all are inter-related with each other, which give a clear picture of fundaments and structure of HR as a whole. Thus, depending on the business not only the structure varies; the atmosphere changes. Moreover without HR, the challenges and dilemma that employees face daily will continue to be un-decided
        The structure of HR is based on fundamentals of Management. Though it takes five days to get introduced to basic Business Management, the trainees utilized this knowledge on practices of Human Resource forming based on company requirements. The attendees of the course were from different organizational backgrounds; some were from companies where HR has already been implemented, and some had little to no knowledge and experience of it.
This course was designed for companies’ executives; consequently with the help of HR professional, they exchanged ideas on Human Resource strategy.
        All company executives and directors are occupied with daily matters. Hence they do not have the time and resources for one of the vital parts of being in business, which is to develop and deploy Human Resource department within the company. This course will not only introduce new information, in addition trainees get to develop HR practice model that fits and compliments the specific business needs.
        Although this was my second visit to Mongolia, seeing how the trainees were determined and efficient empowered me. During the course, the trainees and I discussed ideas and analysis, which benefited all of us.
I wish you all great success in future achievements. (Human Resource Administrator Yamazaki Kyoko )

“The 3rd Japanese Language Educational Symposium”

        On October 16th and 17th, the third Japanese Language Educational Symposium was organized successfully by the Mongolia-Japan Center with the help of Kyoto University, Obirin University and Mongolian Teacher’s Association. Sum of 120 teachers attended the symposium from elementary and secondary school teachers, university and even learning center instructors.
The symposium is intended for teachers who work in the field of Japanese Language Education, and support them to extend networks among themselves. The first day Professor Tsuchiya Chihiro of Kyoto University presented a lecture on “Creating an Educational Environment; focus on preparing highly educated workforce with Japanese Language”.
        Professor Tsuchiya’s quote: “Educational environment includes all of the following: school, friends, fellow classmates, colleagues, instructional resources and internet.” Government planning, political and economic instability also affect and shape students’ educational environment. Students and the environment correlated; and when they are inter-dependent on each other, that is when the learning process begins.

        On the second day of symposium, Obirin University presented a lecture on “How to learn and utilize the Japanese writing skills”. One of the highlights of the event was that they constructed a reference book called “Mongolian wind”. With the help of this book, a workshop session was integrated for students and teachers.
        Next, everyone was put into groups of elementary school, secondary school, university and learning center. Followed by each group’s presentations, and conversed at profound level. At last, each branch’s administration made statements with their evaluations, then organizer Mongolian Japanese Teacher’s Association made a closing statement with its assessment of the event.
The review taken during the symposium included following: clarified a lot of confusions; shared views and techniques with fellow teachers; learned great deal from other teachers’ experiences; presented realistic yet interesting lectures; and with the use of reference book, the practice lesson was successful.
This symposium was mixed of Japanese language, its research, practical training and educational presentations. I’m pleased to say the event assisted teachers to share ideas, techniques, knowledge, and more importantly future networks among the teachers.(Division of Japanese Language Representative T.Sansartuya)
