Students in the Forum of Computing will learn how to plan, practice, and present research in computing by participating actively in research presentations, discussions, and other practical activities. In addition, students will acquire science communication skills related to computing and learn about career development. Students will be responsible for managing the forum and presenting their research in this course. Through this course, students will recognize the position of other fields from the viewpoint of their research field and the position of their research field from the viewpoint of other fields. Finally, students will develop the ability to organize interdisciplinary and cross-cultural meetings, plan and manage interdisciplinary and international study groups, and develop leadership skills to manage research meetings, including presentations from various research fields.
This course aims to help doctoral students acquire the skills in research methods, research presentation, international communication, etc., which they need to acquire before receiving their doctoral degrees through active participation in the class. In particular, the course aims to learn the basics of interdisciplinary and international communication skills for students to participate in discussions in research presentations in other fields actively and manage such international and interdisciplinary research meetings.
Students will acquire the following skills, particularly the basic skill regarding 4), through attending this course.
1) How to plan and conduct research in general
2) Research presentation (presentation, paper)
3) Skills discussing science, interdisciplinary and international communication skills
4) Career development and science communication
Research planning, research execution, research presentation, research discussion, English communication
|Specialist skills||✔ Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Active participation is required by students. In each class, content focused on a student's own research presentation and discussions is dealt with, so preparation in advance is required.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
There might be some handout given during the lectures.
Will be based on participation including presentation and discussion in the class. Will be detailed in the first lecture.
Attendees need to take “Forum on Computing S4” as a prerequisite.
