Course description and aims

In this course, students learn facilitation skills through practices in the "Tokyo Tech Visionary Project" undergraduate course. Students will learn facilitator-type leadership in contrast to traditional leading-type leadership. The main purpose of the facilitation is to support learners to be able to engage in learning by themselves and help them work well as a member of a team. After leaning basic facilitation skills, students participate in the "Tokyo Tech Visionary Project" undergraduate course as facilitators. The aim of this course is that students can acquire practical facilitation skills through practices in the undergraduate course. Students are also expected to be roll models for undergraduate students.

1) explain the differences between leading-type leadership and facilitator-type leadership.
