Course description and aims

Students will be participated in the activity in a small group. They propose and try to complete their own "MONOTSUKURI" plan related to bioscience and biotechnology. The examples of the products may be easy tools to teach bioscience and technology or any other which will be useful for human society. Taking both Bio-creative design 1 and 2 is strongly recommended. advisory teachers will monthly make advises appropriately. Students who also take Bio-creative design 2 will continue their "MONOTSUKURI" and will presents their activity and products in a public contest.

Student learning outcomes

The goal is for students to learn basic bioscience and biotech knowledge, while also developing creative potential, and acquiring independent skills and an inquisitive spirit. Students will also develop teamwork skills (leadership, listening skills, flexibility, situation assessment skills, discipline, and stress control skills) through small-size group learning, as well as develop presentation skills for presenting creation ideas and findings.

Keywords

Bioscience, Biotechnology, Creation of bio-related products, Group work, Presentation skills

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The main activity in class is group discussion and group work. Students will submit an activity report for each activity, and report on their progress monthly to their advisers in a report session.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Introduction The purpose and flow of this course will be explained.
Class 2 Group discussion Each group will start to plan each subject. Discuss the planning in each group.
Class 3 Group discussion Each group will continue to discuss their possible subject(s) to solve some social issue(s) and decides to tackle in this course, and obtain feedbacks from advisory professors.
Class 4 Group presentation (goal setting) Each group will make a 3 min presentation on social issue(s) that the group decides to tackle in this course, and obtain feedback from advisory professors.
Class 5 Discussion of concrete approaches Based on the feedback obtained, each group promotes the group work. Each group will design experiments or research documents to decide concrete approaches toward goals of the group work.
Class 6 Experiments, document research, and their evaluation Each group will start experiments and re-evaluate its goal setting by interpreting the experimental data and/or by researching documents related to the social issues.
Class 7 Experiments, document research, and their evaluation Each group will continue to do experiments and re-evaluate its goal setting by interpreting the experimental data and/or by researching documents related to the social issues.
