授業の概要・目的 The purpose of Seminar Participation is to equip learners with the necessary communication skills to engage with the academic community, expand their intellectual interests, and improve critical thinking skills. Current topics from the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences will be explored from an interdisciplinary perspective with a primary emphasis on academic speaking and listening. Student-selected topics will be covered in one or more classes. Students will be expected to express their ideas in various types of settings (i.e. group discussion, debate, presentations) and prepare for these exchanges by listening to and viewing audio and video materials outside of class.

A central part of this course will be group discussions. Therefore, active participation of students is crucial to the success of this course. Regarding academic speaking, students are expected to exercise their ability to express their views in discussions and debate, as well as improve comprehensibility through pronunciation practice. Regarding academic listening, students are expected to perform self-directed listening tasks using various types of audio and video recordings. These materials will be used to provide additional information to feed in-class discussions. Presentations will be considered in the assessment of students for the completion of this course.

本授業は,学術コミュニティにおいて必要とされるコミュニケーション能力を身につけ,知的好奇心を広げ,批判的思考力を向上させることを目的とする。人文学・社会科学・自然科学の最新のトピックについて,スピーキングとリスニング技能の育成に焦点を当てつつ,学際的な視点から探求する。指定の音声・動画教材を予習し,様々な授業内活動(グループディスカッション,ディベート,プレゼンテーション)で意見交換することが期待される。

本授業では,グループディスカッションが中心的な活動となるため,積極的な授業参加が求められる。アカデミックスピーキングに関しては,発音練習を通して理解されやすい話し方を身につけるとともに,ディスカッションやディベートで意見を表現する能力を育成する。アカデミックリスニングに関しては,様々な種類の音声・動画素材を用いた自学自習が必須であり,これをもとに授業内活動を行う。プレゼンテーションを成績評価の一部とする。
