Course description and aims

With the change to online, we will make a big change to the configuration up to last year and keep it in 2020 Special Edition.
I do not require attendance at every Zoom lecture. Instead, group work (6 people) will be conducted for 2 rounds, each group will make a 10-minute presentation on the specified theme, and will be presented online for mutual evaluation. At the same time, we will aim to improve our reading ability by reading 3 or more designated books and posting a book review on a shared site.

Student learning outcomes

Get "remote power".
As a member of society, you will have more opportunities to collaborate remotely with diverse members to carry out projects. As a rehearsal, I designed a remote project to be a chance to experience 2 lands by changing members and increasing experience value.
