Spring Semester

Outline of lecture

This course meets regularly one day per week during term. The class is fully interactive and attendance is compulsory.

Meets in the Meeting room, Midorigaoka Building #5 (first floor).

Purpose of lecture

The roundtable seminar is intended both to identity and improve skills in technical writing (i.e., those used for academic journals) and also to improve oral presentation techniques, assisted by Power Point or similar media.

Plan of lecture

The initial meeting of this class, which is really a "workshop", will be:

Tuesday, April 8th,
in the Meeting Room, Midorigaoka Building #5 (First Floor) at 9 A.M.

We will continue to meet each Tuesday morning through July, with exceptions for university and other holidays.
Please bring an electronic dictionary or I-phone to class, as well as writing materials.

I anticipate a mixture of first-time students and students who participated in ATC II last autumn. (At that time we concentrated on the analysis of texts, whereas this spring I hope we will be able to concentrate more actively on how to write and on individual presentation skills.)

You will learn to be clear and logical in approach and to write, and present, from the point of view of a prospective reader or listener. You will also learn to speak so that you can be heard easily. We hope to make visual materials (PP) uniform and consistent窶 as well as attractive, interesting, and persuasive.

This takes hard work and, for some students, may at first feel unfamiliar. To achieve your goals, you need to be willing to make some mistakes窶付hen correct them over time.
