Exploring the SDGs and Virtual Model UN in Asia and the Pacific;
A University Network for Online Collaborative Education
- COIL-type education / Fieldwork / Online collaborative learning / SDGs / Environment issues / Mock UN
As part of the SGU project, Toyo University was in charge of the UMAP (University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific) International Secretariat for a five-year period from 2016. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Toyo University has cooperated with universities that are members of UMAP to promote mutual online course enrollment from autumn of 2020. By utilizing this experience, we (1) accept enrollment in mutual online courses on the theme of SDGs, (2) carry out PBL (Project Based Learning) type fieldwork in Japan and overseas through hybrid collaborative learning (online and offline), and (3) hold a virtual mock United Nations which is operated by the initiatives of students.
Notes Regarding Collaboration/Participation
The Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation in which the participating students take on the role of delegates representing the UN member states and simulate a conference that resembles the proceedings of a real conference of the UN.
Each delegate researches and formulates policies, and at the conference, they negotiate to solve the issues in the international community while considering their own national interests.
By participating in the MUN, students will be able to improve their understanding of international issues, and they are also expected to improve their public speaking, English language and negotiation skills.
