Paper Title: Nurturing Local Talent: Shattering the Nexus between Perceived Foreign Expertise and Building in-country Human Capability in the Further Education and Training Sector in Indonesia

Abstract: Foreign expertise holds a revered status in the Indonesian further education and training sector, with the notion of ‘Bule’ playing a pivotal role in how international interventions are resourced. Foreign expertise often brings with it many local assumptions, particularly around the sharing of contemporary and start-of-the-art western knowledge, but often, in reality, this is not practically manifested. It is for these reasons that Maconick (1999) (Maconick, 1999) contends that greater emphasis needs to be placed on defining the operational role of capacity building. Furthermore, these international inventions need to place greater cognizance on the demands placed around funding and their subsequent disbursement of funds and the implications for making inroads into resolving underlying longer-term issues (Potter and Brough, 2004) (Potter & Brough, 2004). The authors believe that greater emphasis should be placed on building local human capital and this paper describes the engagement process in the design of occupational standards challenging the connotation that foreign expertise and influence should be unfettered. While foreign skills and talent can play a pivotal role in developing local human capability, it must be recognized that these interventions be cultural appropriation and look towards creating a sustainable future where indigenous human resources are given equal standing. The methodology applied reflected a most significant change approach (Dart & Davies, 2003) to the evaluation of training methods with an emphasis on workplace engagement.

Paper Title: Current Movements towards Dementia-Friendly Communities in Japan: Contributions by Educational Institutions

Abstract: As a nation where more than 28% of the total population is 65 years and over, Japan faces multiple aging-related issues. Among these, dementia dominates the agenda due to its high societal costs. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the state of the current movement to create dementia-friendly communities across Japan, with a focus on the good practices of educational institutions, such as libraries, museums, and adult education centers. A case study approach was employed, which involved site visits and interviews with those charged with the development of educational projects to create dementia-friendly communities. The findings of this research suggest that some institutions have created dementia-friendly communities through the utilization of existing resources, such as creating space in libraries for cross-disciplinary collections of dementia-related books for those with a special interest in dementia, making use of tangible objects and atmospheres of particular historic times to conduct reminiscence programs in modern history museums, and running Dementia Cafés in adult education centers for those interested in dementia in the local community. However, current movements have tended to focus on assisting carers and ordinary citizens through the provision of appropriate information and through opportunities for exchanging ideas and/or anxieties regarding dementia, and no careful attention has been paid to those living with dementia, whose viewpoints tend to be neglected in most current educational provision. Future research should focus on a broader-range analysis of the ways in which different educational institutions can directly contribute to those living with dementia in response to the educational needs of those individuals so that the potential of each institution can be more fully utilized in the light of current societal needs.
