♦授業の目的・概要 ／ Course Objective
Proficiency in communicating in English in general, and about science inparticular, comes from both knowledge and practice, and this course emphasizes both. By participating in LEGO® Serious Play® workshops, students will examine general principles of good discussion skills, as well as the principles associated specifically with scientific research team discussions. The topics students discuss will be drawn from their diverse backgrounds and research interests.
♦学習目標 ／ Learning Goals
This course will use the LEGO® Serious Play® method, an innovative, experimental process designed to enhance innovation and communication. This method is a unique way to facilitate meetings, communication and problem solving. The goal is to help students tap into hidden potential, and foster creativity. By participating in LEGO® Serious Play® workshops on various scientific topics, students will develop skills in conversation conventions, and subsequently improve their ability to have discussions on science topics in general and their areas of research in particular. Students will actively participate as they problem solve together, all while having fun in an environment that encourages free idea generation.
♦特記事項 ／ Special Note
Each student will receive a LEGO® Serious Play® that has been specially designed for this process.
They will build models and share their ideas. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this course will be conducted online using Zoom.
