"
Next, Takao Futami (Toyo Technica Co., Ltd.), who is a technical advisor to the robot contest “ET Robot Con”, which is also related to our university, is one of the leaders of embedded technology in Japan. “20 years of modeling and embedded development” The lecture was titled.Mr. Nigami talked about his experience with ET Robocon, saying, “The future of Japan should be motivated to tackle completely new issues, not to keep up with the people who are technologically ahead.” It was.
Lastly, Toshio Okamoto, Director of the University of Electro-Communications (Professor, Graduate School of Information Systems), gave a lecture entitled “Present and Future of e-Learning: The Importance of Solid Ability for Skills and Interaction” .Prof. Okamoto said, “From now on, education in Japan should generate discoverable knowledge, not textbook and procedural knowledge, and develop human resources with problem-solving skills.”
After the lecture, an information exchange meeting (a social gathering) was held in a separate room, where the speakers and participants talked together and expanded the circle of exchange.
Here are some comments from Professor Morita.
- Against the policy of promoting student education from the perspective of globalization and diversity, I once again felt the future of Kyoto Information Graduate University.
- It was a wonderful lecture.I think that it will become a global school by taking advantage of the unique characteristics of other universities.If you can make a curriculum that other universities (especially national universities) and others that Morita will teach you, Japan will change.
- I felt sympathy for the human resource development policy that was directly connected to the business and from a management perspective.
- I felt powerful about the lectures based on abundant experience in both industry and academia.I think you have the belief that academics that cannot be applied are meaningless.
- The philosophical and essential questioning was very exciting.
- Just how to use your knowledge as wisdom.I really felt sympathy for this word because I felt it was very important for the seminars I attended recently and my own work.I was very interested in how the Tokyo satellite will spread in the future.
- I sympathized with the need for not only knowledge of technology, but knowledge of business and the wisdom to connect business and knowledge.I am currently listening to lectures from other graduate schools, but I would also like to consider Tokyo Satellite.
