授業の概要・目的 This workshop is for undergraduate students who are interested in economic, social, cultural and political issues that exist in Asia and exploring these issues in English. In addition to advancing students’ knowledge on various topics and improving English-language skills, this workshop is also for students who seek to strengthen their critical thinking and argumentative skills.
到達目標 Upon completing this workshop, students should be able to communicate more confidently on complex issues in English; be more aware of important and pressing issues as well as the various ways of understanding and interpreting them; and, be able to construct and deconstruct an argument with more ease.
授業計画と内容 In the first part of the course (roughly, week 1 to 9), each session will begin with a presentation that will be given by a junior scholar (such as graduate student or post-doctoral fellow) from Kyoto University. The presentation will be about his/her own research or another topic that he/she is interested in and that is related to Asian economies.

In the second part of the course (week 10 to 15), it will be the workshop participants’ turn to give a presentation on a topic of their choice but related to Asian economies.

Before each presentation, students will be asked to prepare a Reading Response. After the presentation, a group of students will be expected to summarize the presentation and raise two or three questions to the class for discussion. All participants are expected to actively engage in the discussion.

Details about the course schedule, content, expectations, etc. will be covered during the first session. And, instructions about how to undertake a Reading Response, how to prepare comments as a discussant, and how to effectively participate in a discussion will be given during the class.
成績評価の方法・観点 The following grading system will be applied:
Participation: 20 pt.
Presentation: 30 pt.
Discussant (for a minimum of two presentations): 30 pt.
Essay (1,500 words maximum): 20 pt.

About the essay, participants will be assigned an article to read for which they will address the following:
- What is the purpose of the article? What does the author seek to show?
- What is the author’s central thesis?
- How does the author defend his/her argument?
- What do you think about the article? Do you agree with the author?Why or why not? Do you think the author makes a convincing case? Why or why not?

Note: About attendance, absences that are for legitimate reasons, such as medical reasons and employment interview, will not be counted. If such a case arises, students will be expected to submit supporting documentation, e.g. a note from a physician. Keep in mind that coming more than 45 minutes after the class starts is counted as a full absence. Arriving 16 to 45-minute late is counted as a half absence. Also, no credit will be allocated for a student with four or more absences.
履修要件 特になし
授業外学習(予習・復習)等 Preparation is key: it is the only way to contribute to discussions in an active and meaningful way and to advance students’ own knowledge and skills as well as their peers.
