This class is designed to allow students to draw intellectual topographic maps of intellectual civilization that have been achieved by mankind for thousands of years through great book reading and discussion. In particular, books on the approaches of philosophy (epistemology), psychology, brain science, psychiatry, and neurology on humans will be selected. We would like to select 17 books related to human intelligence and to discuss key questions to answer from my own perspective to give them unique and proper views. We let them write own thoughts in the form of book reviews or YouTube video monologues.

TS212 Reading Great Books on Human Intelligence and Civilization: Society

3:3:3(6)

TS221 Making Technological Solutions for Social Innovation Ⅰ: Design

3:3:4(6)

This class is designed to allow students themselves to find social problems facing mankind and make their own solutions through technology. First of all, they find important and solvable social problems, then explore various solutions and evaluate them. Then they design technological products or services that can be made within one year or less. In this class, we determine the social issues that we are supposed to figure out, and come up with ideas to solve them. To this end, we design fabrication and experimentation and get insight from pilot results into specific solutions. During the class, they take the necessary classes and study the necessary knowledge together, and come up with solutions through collaboration. They should share the final outcomes at the end of the semester and discuss critically about the results made by each team.

TS222 Technological Solutions for Social Innovation Ⅱ: Prototyping

3:3:4(6)

This class is designed to allow students themselves to find social problems facing mankind and make their own solutions through technology. First of all, they find important and solvable social problems, then explore various solutions and evaluate them. Then they design technological products or services that can be made within one year or less. Based on rough prototypes for social issues and ideas (such as products or services, technology patents, policy proposals, etc.) found the last semester, we present specific solutions to social problems by revising and improving them. During the class, they take the necessary classes and study the necessary knowledge together, and come up with solutions through collaboration. They should share the final outcomes at the end of the semester and discuss critically about the results made by each team.
