The second year Global Course students took part in a workshop held at Osaka University, titled, "Academic Writing" on August 20 (Tu). The workshop was organized by Mr. SHINDO Shuichi, a professor and Mr. SAKAJIRI Akihiro, an associate professor at Osaka University. The students got a lot of assistance from graduate students as teaching assistants during the workshop. The workshop mainly focused on the following three points: (1)think in order to write, (2)no plagiarism, and (3)paragraph writing, through which they learned about fundamental skills for writing a good research paper including collecting and organizing information. They were given a precious opportunity to become aware that building up good research questions is significantly important to writing a good research paper, which will definiteily be a great help for them for their research projects in the second term.
