Measuring Value: 80 Goals for 7 Stakeholders
Keynote Presentation: Philip Sugai

When a company says that it is “creating value” what specifically does this mean? After collecting impact measurement and sustainability reporting and disclosure data from 15 of the world's top ESG and sustainability frameworks, our research team synthesized these into seven unique stakeholder groups, with 80 clear, transparent and objective goals that any organization regardless of size, industry or market can begin focusing on in order to create real and measurable value. This presentation will introduce the results of our assessment of these various value assessors and offer a first draft of stakeholder-focused goals that we have derived from our analyses. We call this goal-based approach to measuring and managing value across these seven stakeholder groups “Ethical Capitalism” which goes one step beyond stakeholder capitalism to provide a clear set of goals towards which firms of any size, or within any industry can aim to collectively achieve. This presentation aims to help business leaders take tangible steps to achieve a common set of sustainability goals and in doing so, create much needed alignment across all stakeholders that they serve.

Transformation of Global Education under COVID-19: a new wave of Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)
Panel Presentation: Shingo Ashizawa, Craig N. Shealy & Keiko Ikeda

In the current difficult situation caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic, international educators have been facing unprecedented challenges. Most physical student mobility has stopped and it is hard to predict when students can start to travel freely again. While we need to deal with the difficult situation caused by the pandemic, alternative programs that utilise online educational platforms are emerging. This session will introduce such new learning models, including COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning). The audience will engage in discussion about how educators can utilise these online platforms and collectively seek ways to redesign the goals, mission and curriculum of global learning.

Traditionally, studying abroad is believed to be an effective way to increase students’ inter- cultural competency. In order to pursue their career choice within today’s increasingly interdependent societies, students need to cultivate greater capacity by engaging with the global society. International educators have been developing study abroad programs and trying to integrate human complexity including cross-cultural issues more explicitly into the learning process. Another trend of study abroad during the last two decades has been the expansion of non-traditional study abroad programs including internship, service learning and field studies. Study abroad has a high impact on a student’s life, but most students will never have this opportunity due to limitations of funding and time. Emerging new global learning programs that utilise digital platforms allow us to design low-risk and low-cost study abroad programs, and such programs will attract those students who have been traditionally unable to participate in study abroad.

The presenters will first introduce examples of good practices of COIL including one sponsored by UMAP. UMAP (University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific) is a multilateral consortia for study abroad. The UMAP-COIL program has been successfully conducted since 2019, even before COVID-19. In 2021, UMAP-COIL will expand to include new features, beyond the original college-level honor program for Advanced Placement (AP) programs in high school.

Issues on Delivering Educational Program in Indonesia during COVID-19
Interview Session: Monty P. Satiadarma

The COVID-19 situation has created various impacts on people’s lives around the world, including in Indonesia. Most areas in Indonesia have utilised online learning programs, and this new approach requires new adjustment for many people. For those who normally conduct teaching with an open university system, they may not have met with serious issues. But for others, serious issues may include a) delivering the program, b) evaluating the program, c) conducting the program. Delivering an online program may be easier with a working from home system for lectures that are theoretically based, but things become extremely difficult with practical issues such as hands-on training in Art Therapy. Moreover, problems in networking sometimes inhibit or at least interrupt the process. In evaluating the process, we are dealing with the condition where we cannot observe the participants; their networking may be active but their presence is questionable, and students can easily become distracted by other issues at home during the learning process. Conducting the program is challenging; many students remain at home with other members in the family and their presence often interrupts the learning process, thus distracting the students’ concentration. Besides, there are a number of activities that require a group process, and students have difficulties in participating – some even finding this impossible. We try our best to resolve the problems including for those who live in remote areas, and we provide reasonable and adjustable assignments for students to accomplish.
