[National Future Strategic Insight] Improvement Directions of University Education for Enhancing Innovative Capabilities of Talented People: Learning Support and the Development of Diagnostic Indicato

Changes in university education are required to strengthen innovation capabilities for the sustainable development of the nation economy through innovation in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Also, policy discussions and support for effective learning support are needed to enhance the innovative capabilities of university students who are in the stage of preparing for entry into the labor market. However, there are relatively less policy discussions on changes in teaching method in specific educational settings compared to discussions on changing the content and curriculum of university education. The study aims to explore directions and strategies for enhancing the effectiveness of learning support in relation to the changing direction of university education to strengthen the innovation capabilities of talented people. Thus, it presented the “diagnostic indicator for learning support to enhance innovative capabilities of university students” developed based on learning paradigms, learning types, and learning support strategies that should be emphasized in the new environment, as well as implications and ways of utilization.

[National Future Strategic Insight] Implications of a Just Transition Policy through Opinions from Key Stakeholders over Coal Phase-out Conflict: Focus on Workers and Local Residents (No. 57)

This study aimed to draw implications for a just transition policy by collecting opinions of workers and local residents, who are key stakeholders involved in the major conflict issues related to coal phase-out. The survey participants were selected on a small scale, taking into consideration their understanding of coal phase-out policy and the representativeness of their opinions as stakeholders. The survey questionnaire was designed to inquire about their awareness of the climate crisis and coal phase-out policy, the major conflict issues surrounding coal phase-out, and the direction of the just transition policy. According to the survey results, both the workers and local residents, who are the main victims of coal phase-out policy, showed a high level of awareness regarding the climate crisis and coal phase-out policy. However, opinions differed on conflict issues and the direction of the just transition policy by each stakeholder group according to their positions and situations. Based on these findings, several implications were drawn, including the need for active involvement of the National Assembly in establishing and implementing a just transition policy in relation to coal phase-out, to lay a foundation for achieving carbon neutrality favorably.
