The “Media Creation Workshop (University-wide Independent Research Seminar)” is offered as a course unit for freshman and sophomore students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students in this course interview experts and alumni outside the campus, write up reports and produce videos. The resulting contents are made freely available on iPhone or iPad, packaged as a digital book application called “From Todai” series.
On August 2010, Professor Michael Sandel was invited from Harvard University to give a dialogue-based lecture on “Justice” to our students. It was co-sponsored by NHK with the aim of popularizing dialogue-format lectures in Japan.
