[General]Dear Next Trainee Teachers

“When I first entered the College of Education, I was absorbed by one saying: a teacher is a supporting actor of another person’s life. That, I believe, is what becoming a teacher is about,” answered Kim Yoon-sung (Department of Mathematics Education, 4th year) when asked about his future plan of becoming a teacher. Kim So-yeon (Department of English Education, 4th year) agreed on this point and added, “school is about more than just education. It is about learning life. I want to become a teacher who is like a friend.” Kim Yoon-sung and Kim So-yun are two aspiring teachers-in-training on their journey to becoming teachers and who have both completed their teaching-practice. (From left) Kim So-yeon (Department of English Education, 4th year) and Kim Yoon-sung (Department of Mathematics Education, 4th year) share their teaching-practice at the Student Union Building café on October 15th, 2018. Teaching-practice is a compulsory course for all 4th year students in the College of Education in which students go to their assigned school and teach students in real life. For these two teachers-in-training, the teaching-practice was a special experience. Students must apply for a four-week course throughout April to May at either a partnership school or a self-selected school. During this period, they spend two weeks with class inspection, after which, each gets to manage one class as a subject teacher for another two weeks. Both Kim So-yeon and Kim Yoon-sung remarked that the time spent with their students was difficult but immensely valuable. Kim So-yeon said that she was not only able to develop her professional skill by testing her own personally-designed teaching method but was also constantly encouraged by the occasional warm greetings and encouragements from her students, whom she still keeps in touch with. Kim Yoon-sung reminisced that on his last day of teaching, he and his students cried together for over an hour. It was a life-changing experience as he was determined to pursue his dream of becoming a teacher again, having almost given up on obtaining his dream once before.

Information such as the day’s schedule, the practice report, the trainee's thoughts, and teacher feedback can be seen in the photo. Of course, they were not without difficulties. Kim Yoon-sung, as the representative practice-teacher, spent busy days teaching more than 30 hours of class over the two-week period. In addition to the tight schedule, both recalled that many students lacked interest in classes. Kim So-yeon remarked that she was hurt to see students sleeping during her class. In this sense, they both realized that finding ideas to teach while not losing the students' interest was a hard task. For this, they have each invented useful tips to prepare for a best teaching-practice experience. One suggestion by Kim Yoon-sung was to look up the theses for ideas. “I once told them to make sentences with the negative-number multiplication rule. They came up with ingenious sentences like ‘one-sided love multiplied by one-sided love equals love.’” Also, he recommended that someone should consider the pros and cons of both middle and high schools, and remember the students’ names as quickly as possible. Kim So-yeon advised to approach the students first. “Try to become friends. The first week is pretty awkward, but you have to keep trying.” She advised implementing many activities to keep the students engaged, and using the personal specialties of individual students might also help. “I’ve shown them pictures from my exchange-student days for the last 5 to 10 minutes of class. Some students were awake just for that special treat.” Lastly, both said in unison to try the best, for one can earn so much from the experience.

[General]Let’s Explore the College of Pharmacy!

The College of Pharmacy is a mystery for many Hanyang University students. It is unlikely that the next person you ask about the College of Pharmacy would know much information about it at all. Where is the building located? How do you get into the College of Pharmacy? What type of work can students majoring in the department contribute after graduation? Many of these doubts were cleared away when News H met Park Chan-woo, Seo Dong-jin, and Choi Bo-hyeon (College of Pharmacy, 3rd year) on October 10th, 2018 at one of the conference rooms in what obviously seemed like a huge, newly-built building. The Hanyang University College of Pharmacy was established in the ERICA campus in 2010. You can easily spot the building on the ERICA campus map by searching for the number 309 where it is colored in blue. There are 15 professors, about 130 undergraduates, and 50 graduate students. The admissions process for the College of Pharmacy is distinctive from other departments. Those who wish to major in pharmacy must have completed at least two years of college (minimum of 60 credits), including 3 credits in mathematics. They must also have a grade in the Pharmacy Education Eligibility Test (PEET) and are also required to submit official English examination scores such as TOFEL iBT, TOEIC, or TEPS in order to apply. A picture of a model pharmacy where 5th grade students can prepare for their real-life practice in a pharmacy to take place in their 6th year. This model pharmacy is designed in the same manner as an ordinary pharmacy. The College of Pharmacy operates a system widely known as the 'two plus four' years system. That is, pharmacy major students attend four years in the College of Pharmacy after completing a minimum of two years in a four-year university or after graduating from community college. Starting from 2019, there will be a slight change to the admissions process that potential applicants might want to be informed of. The College of Pharmacy will evaluate students who have applied in the “regular admissions (일반전형)” on factors including documents, GPA, official English test scores and PEET scores. Unlike last year, five students will be chosen foremost in their new initial selection process without undergoing an interview. The competition rate for the “regular admissions” was 2.63:1 as of 2018. The biggest difference from the 2019 admissions process is that the placement test (기초학력평가) which used to be the second step of the entry procedure, was replaced by a personality/aptitude interview. The interview will mainly evaluate students on their will to study, their qualification as a potential pharmacist, and the possibility for personal development. It was evident that students in this department shared close ties with each other as other students kept peeking through the door out of curiosity during the interview. This is natural since there are 25 people in one grade system, and every student takes classes in one classroom. They study in a family-like atmosphere that reminds them of their high school years, said the interviewees. Their age ranges from 23 to 32 among students, which makes it possible to encounter fun episodes such as one of their fellow colleagues getting married and everyone being invited to the wedding. Students also have fun with their studies. “We study fun, practical projects like analyzing the caffeine in human hair,” said Seo Dong-jin (College of Pharmacy, 3rd year). (From left) Park Chan-woo, Seo Dong-jin, and Choi Bo-hyeon (College of Pharmacy, 3rd year) wish to change negative views of pharmacists and be helpful to those in need. Hanyang University’s College of Pharmacy has been on the path to producing successful outcomes. So far, the results of the State Examination of Pharmaceutics (약사국가고시) have been flawless, with the percentage of successful applicants being 100 from the year of establishment. “We will strive to cultivate new generation of leaders in the field of pharmacy and keep up the development of new medicine so that we can contribute to the promotion of national health,” said the Dean of the College of Pharmacy, Hah Jung-mi. “Many people say that pharmacists are losing their place to stand in society due to the fourth industrial revolution. I want to create what only pharmacists can do. I think that sincere communication between a pharmacist and patients is what is truly important in this modern era,” answered Park Chan-woo (College of Pharmacy, 3rd year) when asked what type of a pharmacist he would like to become.

[General]Why Do You Read the Classics?

The very first winners of the Freshmen Book Review Contest held by the Paiknam Academic Information Center and Library were announced on September 20th, 2018. The first-year students read the assigned book, Why Read the Classics?, in which the writer, Italo Calvino, introduces his reviews on 35 different classics to answer the question of why we need to read the classics. The topic of this year’s contest was to choose one of the 35 classics and exhibit the importance of the classics as well as their changes in perspectives after reading them, compared to that of Calvino's. 20 students received the prize (one grand prize, two first prizes, five second prizes, and 12 third prizes) with the prize money ranging from 600,000 won to 100,000 won. (From left) Kim Soo-ah (College of Nursing, 1st year), Han Joo-heon (Department of Theater and Film, 1st year), and Lee Su-jin (College of Economics and Finance, 1st year) at the award ceremony (Photo Courtesy of Paiknam Academic Information Center and Library) What the book had told them Lee Su-jin (College of Economics and Finance, 1st year), the grand prize winner, said she reads classics to understand and re-evaluate the current era’s problems. Lee specifically referred to the concept of a fight between ‘nothingness’ and ‘dignity’ introduced in A Clean, Well-Lighted Place by Ernest Hemingway. She explained that this fight continues to this day as a controversy over death with dignity. According to Lee, the contemporary’s attempt to solve the problems left by the classics is meaningful, which gives them their value. A first prize winner, Han Joo-heon (Department of Theater and Film, 1st year), in his review about Two Hussars by Leo Tolstoy, suggests that the significance of the classics lies in that they provide the contemporary people a more intimate understanding of the ancient days. People are able to communicate with the past generations through classics. For that, Han agrees that classics are determined not by their published date but by their impact on the people. Another first prize winner, Kim Soo-ah (College of Nursing, 1st year) explained the three beauties of the classics. Reading classics allows the taking of different perspectives, helps in reorganizing life-values, and teaches tolerance. This is exactly what her chosen book Candide, ou by Voltaire taught her: a perspective that one's beauty should not come from outside standards, a life-value to focus more on the present than worry about the future, and to tolerate different cultures in how they define good and evil. In that sense, she defined the classics as “books of contemplation, not of antique.” The three winners strongly recommend that next year's freshmen should participate in the next Freshmen Book Review Contest. Journey to be continued It seemed like the contest was an eye-opener to all. The winners remarked that they previously thought that classics were hard to read, but now each is making an effort to read more. Lee is particularly interested in the plays based on the classics and wishes to read Shakespeare's beautiful sonnets. Han says, since his major emphasizes Western philosophy, that he wants to study Eastern philosophical books. Kim, already on her journey to more classics, is reading a book from Hanyang’s 79 recommended books. The winners encouraged next-year's freshmen to join the competition as well. They stated that it is less of a burden than expected from the word ‘classic.’ They anticipate that more people will find out the true value of the classics through this contest.

[General]Hanchelin, the Effort to Improve School Food

Hanchelin(한슐랭), which is an unfamiliar name for many Hanyang students, is a project held to improve school cafeteria facilities and food. Members of Hanchelin are striving to promote students’ rights to have tasty and yet affordable lunch on-campus. Q: What is Hanchelin? Hanchelin stands for Michelin Guide of Hanyang. Members of Hanchelin evaluate the food at the school cafeterias for the purpose of improving the quality of on-campus food. The Hanchelin project was implemented this year in the beginning of the second semester by the Students’ Rights Welfare Committee(학생인권복지위원회). The number one priority of Hanchelin is not only to eat food and score the cafeterias, but to find out the factors in need of improvement by being in the shoes of an actual costumer, according to Kim Yeong-ung, the chairman of the Students’ Rights Welfare Committee who provided much information on the Hanchelin project. Q: How do you join Hanchelin? The key prerequisite to join the team is to have a schedule that allows for evaluation of campus food during lunch time. Hanchelin consists of 20 male and 20 female students who are grouped into teams of four. They meet up to have lunch together and share their thoughts on school food. In return for the hard work that these first rounds of members in the Hanchelin projects engage in, they receive a meal ticket which allows them to freely enjoy their lunch. Q: How do Hanchelin evaluate the school cafeterias and food? Hanchelin members have the duty to fill out an evaluation form after their meal. The online form must be submitted by the end of the day so that their memories are still fresh and ready for objective evaluation of on-campus food and restaurants. The evaluation form consists of the following criteria: taste, cost-effectiveness, sanitation, and the amount of food. Hanchelin members visit one school cafeteria a week, and 5 in total. While each Hanchelin team must gather up at least 3 times a week, they must also visit the same cafeteria for 3 times in a row. They seemed to have sufficient knowledge of the place that they ate in that week, due to this reason. Sarangbang Review Four menus filled the table as members of Hanchelin and NewsH reporters gathered around for a meal together on Friday Cotober 5th at Sarangbang. On October 5th, 2018, NewsH reporters joined Choi Chang-min (Division of Materials Science and Engineering, 4th year) and Choi Young-jun (Division of Business Administration, 3rd year) for their lunch evaluation session at Sarangbang. The Sarangbang menu on Friday was bibimbap with bulgogi, hashed rice with sausage, noodle soup with kimchi and beef brisket, and tonkatsu(port cutlet) with beef steak and rice. “I love the fresh salad that is free for boundless refill. Also I highly encourage you to try the soup or the noodle at Sarangbang. They are tasty and come in big bowls that ought to make you feel pleasantly full.” said Choi. “I personally like food that taste great, but at the same time looks great. In that sense, Sarangbang food always meet my needs,” added Choi Chang-min (Division of Materials Science and Engineering, 4th year). Q: Any last thoughts? “I believe that cost-effectiveness is the most important factor to look for in school food. In that sense, cafeterias for students at Hanyang plaza 3rd floor has tasty food compared to the cheap price that they offer. Sanitary factors including the sanitation of cups, tables, and tableware also seemed to be sincerely taken care of.” said Choi. “Hanchelin is the only channel that deliver opinions from students, whom are the main customers of school cafeterias. At the end of the day, indirectly promoting the best student cafeteria chosen by Hanchelin members by continuously exposing the promotion quote, “the best student cafeteria chosen by Hanchelin” will help bring about improved school food, for the better,” said Kim Yeong-ung, the chairman of the Students’ Rights Welfare Committee. (From left) Choi Chang-min (Division of Materials Science and Engineering, 4th year) and Choi Young-jun (Division of Business Administration, 3rd year) spoke about their hopes for Hanchelin project to persist so others get a chance to participate in this fun project.

[Academics][Excellent R&D] The Korean Imitation Game

Until just several decades ago, warfare was in the form of military, unlike today's contemporary world where the international society puts heavy emphasis on global peace. This, in other words, means the use of military force has become limited and instead, the role of information warfare has now become a crucial factor in defedning a country's existence. Professor Yoon Dong-weon (Department of Electronic Engineering) and the Signal Intelligence Research Center (SIRC) are now in charge of the frontline of signal intelligence alongside the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA). The Signal Intelligence Research Center (SIRC) A specialized research center refers to those who have been appointed in grafting the high leveled technology of the private sector into technology that is developed and used for the purpose of national defense. It is DAPA, which designates the specialized research centers, appointing the SIRC as the one responsible for signal intelligence until 2020. Being a six-year project, and being funded with 12.5 billion won in total, the SIRC is the first specialized research center to have a recurring demand troop. (From left) Professor Yoon Dong-weon (Department of Electronic Engineering) and Ahn Seong-jin (Department of Electronic Engineering, Master's Degree) are analyzing the signal codes. The center mainly consists of four laboratories, with each serving its own purpose: signal collection technology, signal processing technology, voice information technology, and code reconstruction technology. With Hanyang University taking the lead in the overall research, 17 schools and 34 professors in total are currently participating. Being a six-year project divided into mainly two stages, the center has successfully completed the first part of research and has moved on to the second stage in 2018. The Importance of Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) According to Yoon, who is the current director of the SIRC, one the most fundamental concepts of information warfare is signal intelligence, which is intelligence-gathering by the interception of signals. National intelligence is mainly divided in to two categories, which are tactical intelligence and strategic intelligence. Tactical intelligence refers to short-term information, whereas strategic intelligence focuses more upon long-term information. From this perspective, strategic intelligence is a comprehensive national intelligence that has to be studied and researched persistently. Consisting of imagery intelligence (IMINT), human intelligence (HUMINT), open-source intelligence (OSINT), and signal intelligence (SIGINT), it is SIGINT that is being mainly focused upon in the contemporary society and has to be studied in order to preserve the existence of a nation from a strategic level. Yoon is explaining the importance of signal intelligence in the contemporary society and how it should be persistently studied in order to defend the nation's existence. “Signal intelligence is once again divided into communication intelligence (COMINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), and foreign instrumental signal intelligence (FISINT). Out of the three, it is communication intelligence that the research center is mainly focusing upon. It is easier if one thinks of the movie ‘The Imitation Game (Morten Tyldum, 2014)’ and how signal intelligence is used in defending the existence of the country,” explained Yoon. Yoon also mentioned that although we currently live in an era of peace, it is important to keep track of potential threats and consistently prepare ourselves, given that we are surrounded by countries that have strong abilities of signal intelligence. “SIRC will always lead an edge in defending national security and signal intelligence,” ended Yoon determinedly.

[General]Hanyang's Future Generations in Art and Software

Around 80 percent of Korea’s education for gifted children centers around mathematics and science. The faculty of Hanyang University, on the other hand, opened a new field of knowledge to the future generations. Hanyang Education through Art and Design Lab (HEAD-Lab) and the Hanyang Gifted Education Center each introduce young pupils to the world of computer science and art and design. Kim Sun-ah (Department of Applied Art Education) posing in front of ‘Accessing and Connecting Art’ exhibition on the first floor of the College of Education building HEAD-Lab’s Hanyang Education through Art and Design Start program (HEAD Start program) is a program sponsored by the Seoul city for children from low-income families who show high interest and potential in art. Six classes of 100 students from age 10 to 17 meet every Saturday for 30 weeks, and learn four modules: which are modeling (basic drawing), media (experiencing graphic programs), design (practical design processing), and convergence problem-solving (solving various problems in connection to art). Kim Sun-ah, the Managing Director of HEAD-Lab, explains that rather than teaching children to be good in a certain genre of art, the program aims to encourage a general thinking ability that can be developed through art and design. “We want to teach the ability, attitude, and ideas that can be raised by thinking like an artist. We want to teach them to challenge and experiment in many new mediums and tools,” said Kim. Ryu Min-soo (Division of Computer Science and Engineering) explaining the curriculum of the Hanyang Gifted Education Center The Hanyang Gifted Education Center is the first and only education center for gifted children that teaches computer science and has six courses: Computational Thinking and Algorithm, Programming and Computing Practice, Understanding Computer System and Network, Data Model and Scientific Analysis, Application and Convergence of Computer Science, and Computer Science and Information Society. Classes of less than 15 students from the age 10 to 17 take a three-hour class every Saturday from March to October, after which they take evaluation tests that decide whether they are suited for the next level class (the levels are divided into two, which are basic and intensive, but this year, there is an additional level of advanced). The aim of the education, according to Ryu Min-soo, the Director of the center, is to raise the students as active participants in various fields of the future society, who have the knowledge of computer science. “Nowadays, when new technology emerges, it affects the society, economy, and even our daily lives,” said Ryu. “Future generations will not survive without the knowledge of computer science technology.” New students are accepted to the programs through taking entrance examinations. For HEAD Start program, the most emphasized quality to evaluate during the entrance assessment was how active students were when given a completely new material. Providing them with paints and paper streamers, assessors focused on the degree of interest and activeness shown by the students. The entrance test for Hanyang Gifted Education Center is consisted of two parts. One is for testing the general ability in language and thinking, and the other is for testing the computing thinking. This year, for the upcoming application period from October 1st to October 12th, there is a special admission for students who excel in programming skills. Students taking a class of HEAD Start program (Photo Courtesy of Kim) In the future, Kim hopes to set up a gifted education center of art. That way, she plans to run autonomous programs, not limited to the low-income children but open also to those in the ‘grey area’ of income-bracket or those over 17-years-old. Ryu says his aim is to establish a leading model of curriculum in gifted children education, that could be exported to other countries. Also, he has high hopes that Hanyang University will become the best university in software education. Although the fields are quite different, both are on a journey to a similar goal – to establish and expand the education for the gifted children.
