Inclusion and Inclusive Education in the Federal Republic of Germany 2011

 

It was in 1973 that I visited the first time the National Institute of Special Education, located in the Kanagawa-Prefecture near the city of Nobi (Yokohama). Since then it developed a continuously relationship expressed in an official scientific exchange contract with the University of Cologne, mutual visits and research work.

 

Nowadays I’m an International Cooperator informing the Institute about the educational, scientifically and political development in (Special) Education in the Federal Republic of Germany. The report for 2011 reads as follows.

 

 

 

 

 

SUPREME MORALITY and EMERGING FUTURES

 

Between 1971 and 1975 I was lecturer for German Language and Culture at the Reitaku University of the Hiroike Gakuen at Kashiwa, Chiba Prefecture in Japan.

 

Since that time I have close connections to the University and The Institute of Moralogy. In 2009 I was invited to participate in the Second International Conference on Moral Science, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice: Evaluating Chikuro Hiroike‘s Work in Moralogy.

 

I presented the following article:

SUPREME MORALITY and EMERGING FUTURES

 

Meanwhile this version is translated into Japanese and edit: The Institute of Moralogy, Second International Conference on Moral Science Ethical Theory and Moral Practice: Evaluating Chikuro Hiroike’s Work in Moralogy, 2011, 402-418.

 

Parallel to the article a powerpoint presentation was given as a lecture:

 

 

 

“One thing I’ll never do: To give up”

 

In August 2009 I was invited to “The International Forum for the End-of-Life Care for Children with Cancer or Other Diseases: the Collaboration with Education, Nursing and Medical Professionals“ held at Tokyo Medical and Dental University School of Dentistry Hall.

 

In this forum, the educational and medical professionals from Japan, Australia, Sweden, Italy and Germany, and the United States made presentations and exchanged information about their situations and practice by comparing and discussing for educational support for children at the end/of/life stage.

 

This forum was supported by the research and grant of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture, and the Principle Investigator was Tetsuro Takeda, Professor of Wakayama University Scholl of Education Japan.

 

I offered a lecture with the title:

 

“One thing I’ll never do: To give up”! Children with cancer in the final stage and other diseases. An educational approach to existential situations in human life. - Research in the 21st century.”
