JAPA 370 - International Student Forum at Ochanomizu University
The International Student Forum annually takes place at Ochaonomizu University for two weeks in mid-February. Two students from each of Ochanomizu’s exchange schools in Poland, France, Germany, South Korea, China, and the U.S. meet in Tokyo and discuss various global issues in Japanese. The themes of the past forum include “Construction of Global Network,” “Disaster and the Movement of Population,” and “Discussing Environment and Natural Disaster.” Two students are required to prepare a 10-minute PPT presentation together under the close mentoring of a Japanese faculty member.
Students research the topic given for the forum during winter break communicating with the instructor via email or Skype. After the break, students are intensively supervised – getting advice on their PPT and
correcting their presentation manuscript. Hiromi Dollase.
