Other information

必修
face-to-face One of the main shortcomings for many students (both graduate and undergraduate) in Japanese institutions (as witnessed by most professors) is the lack of student participation or involvement in class discussions. This also limits the ability of students to critically evaluate previous published research and to logically plan their own projects. The goal of this class is to actively engage students in discussions and instill in them the ability to participate in the scientific process.
