Through sources in the media and classroom discussions, students of different cultures find that they share some of their highest values. The course is intended to contribute to a higher appreciation of other cultures as a key to a more peaceful world.
This course will help students grasp more deeply:
• respect for other cultures, customs and manners;
• the requirements for upright leadership;
• the need for true friendships in personal development;
• the vital role of the family for a society;
• the importance of professional ethics in research.
|授業概要／指導方針||[Course Outline / Teaching Method]
In each class students are presented with an article or short video on an issue in the media to provide them an opportunity to share values they hold highly. Students write and then present orally their views and take part in a class discussion. There is a final presentation by each student on professional ethics in research and research publication.
All sessions will be offered as on-line real-time Webex meetings. The Webex link will be sent by email to registered students.
