CICASP conducts a weekly CICASP Seminar in Science Communication which aims to develop students’ skills in scientific communication and critical thinking. The goal is to enhance your ability to communicate your own results, discuss scientific topics in English and critically assess scientific literature. As well as learning essential skills for scientists, you will have the opportunity to practise what you learn and receive feedback in a supportive, English-speaking environment. The seminars are designed to be interactive; with the focus on active learning.
CICASP Seminars usually run in blocks of 3-4 sessions. Each block is led by one particular member of the CICASP Team and is focused on one specific skill or set of skills. The CICASP Team members are: Ikuma Adachi, Yuko Hattori, Andrew MacIntosh, and Claire Watson.
The CICASP Seminars are designed for all students at PRI, both Japanese and international, and at all stages of their graduate programs, and we strongly encourage all students to attend. All PWS students are required to attend as part of their curriculum (while in Inuyama).
