Description

Japanese-medium elective

Participants from HKU will be teamed up with students from a partner university (Hokkaido University, Japan) and work collaboratively on the examination of current problems that the international community faces. Each team will select a topic, conduct research, and recommend solutions that are likely to improve situations. The inter-university communication will be done online, using telecommunication systems. Online discussions and debates help the teams to prepare for poster presentations and the individual participant to compose an essay, along with the information and opinions resulting from the research.
