CAMPUS Asia 21st Century Skills Seminar

A total of 36 students and two Tokyo Tech staff members participated in the CAMPUS Asia 21st Century Skills Seminar held at the Ookayama Campus on February 13, 2017. In addition to CAMPUS Asia students from KAIST and Tsinghua University who are studying at Tokyo Tech, participants included Tokyo Tech students who have previously participated in or will participate in the outbound CAMPUS Asia program and other Tokyo Tech students interested in improving their communication skills. Lecturers for the seminar were Mr. David W. Fingerote and Mr. Matthew Melville of beo.

The morning lecture by Mr. Fingerote focused on effective office communications, conflict resolution, negotiation skills, and the many variations of professional cultures worldwide. Fingerote discussed the importance of professional journaling, which allows individuals to look back at the end of each day and explore what happened in order to help them share ideas.

After a "communication lunch" with participants, Mr. Melville led the afternoon workshop. Students worked together in groups to discuss topics such as "What makes it difficult to communicate in English?" and "What does language fluency really mean?" They shared ideas and learned how to communicate more effectively in English.
