Inviting Dr. Gary Mukai, Director of the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) of Stanford University, the school held this year’s first Special Assembly for the GA Course.
After his informative guidance on Stanford University and two online courses offered by SPICE, namely Stanford e-Japan and the SPICE/Stanford e-Course on Global Health for Takatsuki Senior High School, nearly 70 participating students in the course were given a very interesting talk on his main topic, how to develop a global mindset. He said what’s essential were the following five elements; strengthening content knowledge, working on effective communication strategies, appreciating the interdependence of the world, considering multiple perspectives, and increasing the openness to seeking new opinions, surprisingly all of which are satisfied by taking the e-Course for Takatsuki High School! Most participating students seemed to enjoy his talk very much. Dr. Mukai is one of the biggest supporters in the promotion of Takatsuki’s global education.
