Intro

edX: The Chemistry of Life

 with  Shoji Kajita, Naoko Tosa, Toru Iiyoshi and Motonari Uesugi

Chemistry and biology are traditionally taught as separate subjects at the high school level, where students memorize fundamental scientific principles that are universally accepted. However, at the university level and in industry, we learn that science is not as simple as we once thought. We are constantly confronted by questions about the unknown and required to use creative, integrated approaches to solve these problems. By bringing together knowledge from multidisciplinary fields, we are empowered with the ability to generate new ideas. The goal of this course is to develop skills for generating new ideas at the interface between chemistry and biology by analyzing pioneering studies.

Anonymous dropped this course.
It was an interesting idea, but very badly implemented. The discussion was full of gripes and complaints, and the staff was often quite grumpy about dealing with legitimate complaints.
