研究計画発表会【Student Proposal Seminars】

posted Jul 29, 2015, 3:53 PM by Yoshitaka Uchida Hokudai



     It is already the end of July but we finally held student proposal seminars, inviting different types of people. I consider it is extremely important for my students to present their research proposals to people other than myself because listening other people's opinions on their proposals often makes their research quality much better. Students, professors, staffs from other research teams came to join our proposal seminars and I sincerely thank them for this. 

     Five students, 3 masters and 2 undergraduates, presented their proposals. Well, I know some other professors supervise far more but for me, 5 students are more than enough to make me extremely busy, although I am having fun. I really want my students to learn not only to conduct high quality research but to develop their skills to communicate through the research. 

     The proposals were done in English and my students did them very well. However, I still think they were struggling to answer questions. I am also struggling to teach them how to answer questions and develop discussion based on the questions. It is not easy!
