UC Osaka Office Lecture Series -- Case Based Critical Thinking No. 28
The UC/UCEAP Osaka Office will be holding its 28th lecture in this special lecture series "Case Based Critical Thinking."
The lecturer for
this series is Dr. John Hampton Ino (Specially Appointed Professor,
Office for Academic Exchange with the University of California;
Professor Emeritus, University of
California, San Francisco; former Director, UC Tokyo Study Center).
This special English lecture series is being conducted in an interactive seminar-style, based on group discussions about familiar topics. Participants consider things from multiple viewpoints, critically and pleasantly, through stakeholder analysis in order to develop logical thinking ability and communication skills.
Any student from OU may attend. Faculty members wishing to observe the lecture are also welcome. You may attend this lecture even if you have not attended a lecture in this series before, so we hope to see some new faces as well! We only have room for 30 attendees, so make sure you register soon to guarantee your spot!
Date and Time
Tuesday, September 5, 2017 - 13:30~16:40 (We will have a brief intermission from 15:00~15:10)
Lecture Room #4, 7F, Interdisciplinary Research Building, Toyonaka Campus
The lecture will challenge the students' critical thinking skills. Students will be given case studies. They will analyze the issue and answer the general question, "What should I do?"
The general "tools" they will struggle with are:
1) Where should I stop on this "slippery slope"?
2)What is influencing my actions: feeling (emotion) or thinking (intellect)?
This month's topic: "If some athletes are mutants, how do we make sports fair?"
Critical Thinking Questions:
1. What is the solution to mutants in competition?
2. If mutants make sports unfair, would you still watch the 2020 Tokyo Olympics?
3. What is the definition of "cheating" in sports? ...in life?
