筑波技術大学概要2018―20194基本的目標基本的目標 | Primary Goals of the University国立大学法人筑波技術大学(以下「本学」という。)は、「主として、専門分野の特性に配慮しつつ、強み・特色のある分野で、地域というより世界・全国的な教育研究を推進する取組を中核とする国立大学」として、聴覚・視覚障害者のための高等教育に関する我が国の中核的役割を果たす。 教育においては、社会自立できる産業技術・保健科学・情報保障学の専門職業人を養成するため、また専門技術の高度化等社会のニーズに対応するため、入学時から卒業時まで、教養教育から専門教育までの体系的で一貫性のある教育課程を編成する。 また、開学以来蓄積した障害者の教育、支援に関する知識、技術をさらに発展させ、障害者の発達的特性や障害に起因した情報伝達の困難性に配慮した授業を展開するとともに、少人数教育の利点を活かした個に即した指導、支援を行い、障害や専門性に即したアクティブラーニングの手法を開拓し、常に変遷するグローバル社会に適応できる職業人を育成する。 研究においては、聴覚・視覚障害者のための産業技術・保健科学・情報保障学の専門分野に関する国際的水準の研究を展開し、国内外の研究をリードする。また、教育、支援活動を通して得られた知見を学術的に分析、解明し、障害者の能力向上と、その能力を発揮できる社会の変革に供する基礎的、応用的な情報を発信する。特に聴覚・視覚障害者の情報保障及び東西医学統合医療に関わる分野においては、内外において最新且つ実用的な研究成果を発信する。 社会貢献においては、本学が有する障害者の教育、支援に関する知見を広く国内外に発信し、障害者の能力向上と彼等を取り巻く社会のバリアフリー化、ユニバーサル化に寄与する。このため国内外の障害関係機関、教育機関、研究機関、行政機関、企業等と連携し、初等、中等教育への教育的支援、他大学で学ぶ障害学生支援、障害者の職域開拓と就労に関する支援、医療・スポーツを通した障害児者の社会活動参加能力向上への支援を行う。 これらの教育、研究、社会貢献を通して、障害者自身が社会に参画し活動する意欲と能力を獲得し、また彼等がその能力を十分に発揮できる社会の実現に貢献する。The National University Corporation of Tsukuba University of Technology (NTUT) plays a leading role in providing higher education for people with hearing and/or visual disabilities in Japan by “primarily focusing on activities to promote world and nation-wide educational research that is not just community-oriented but extends to related and distinctive fields with due consideration to the characteristics of its specialties.”NTUT offers a systematically and meaningfully designed curriculum from admission to graduation covering disciplines ranging from liberal arts education to professional training. The curriculum is designed to prepare socially independent professionals in the fields of industrial technology, health science, and information and communication accessibility to meet the needs of a society seeking increased expertise.The research conducted by the university since its inception has led to an accumulation of knowledge and techniques to support people with disabilities, and it plans to further improve on these methods to gain more expertise in the field. The university has endeavored to provide students with teaching that gives due consideration to their developmental characteristics and the communication difficulties attributed to their disabilities. The university offers individualized instruction and support, which are the advantages of small-group education, and develops active learning methods suited to particular disabilities and specialties. In this way, it helps prepare professionals who can adapt to the ever-changing global society. On the research front, the research community globally and nationally is encouraged by the university to conduct world-class research in the fields of industrial technology, health science, and information and communication accessibility for people with hearing and visual disabilities. The research community aims to analyze and clarify insights acquired through educational and support activities and disseminate basic and applied information that can benefit people with disabilities and bring about social change to enable them to lead fuller and better lives. Particularly in the fields of information and communication accessibility for people with hearing and visual disabilities and integrated Eastern and Western medicine, the latest and practical research outcomes are disseminated within and outside of Japan. In terms of social contribution, knowledge and skills for the education and support of people with disabilities should be disseminated within and outside Japan. The knowledge and insight provided contribute to increasing the abilities of people with disabilities and paves the way for the realization of a barrier-free and universal society. To achieve this, the university collaborates with other institutions for disabilities, educational institutions, research institutions, as well as government institutions and private companies within and outside of Japan. The university extends support in primary and secondary education, helping students with disabilities who are studying in other universities and colleges, expanding job categories and employment, and enabling students and people with disabilities to overcome their limitations as well as helping them to participate in social activities through healthcare services and sport.Through education, research, and social contribution, as mentioned above, the mission of the university is to work for the realization of a society in which people with disabilities can overcome their disabilities and become active participants in it.天久保キャンパス校舎棟School buildings in Amakubo Campus
