10 universities, including Hanyang University, will be holding regular online seminars on World Life Science starting from the 2nd semester. 10 universities will be in charge of this seminar, and Stanford students and faculty will also be participating.
According to an electronic newspaper on August 13, Hanyang University, Seoul National University, Sungkyunkwan University, Chung-Ang University, Ewha Womans University, Sookmyung Women's University, University of Seoul, Konkuk University, Soonchunhyang University of Medicine and Ajou University will jointly hold lectures and discussions on the field of life sciences, starting next month.
Previously, Sungkyunkwan University held a video seminar every two weeks with Stanford K-BioX, a group of Korean scientists at Standford University, in the first semester. Stanford University researchers, 30 Silicon Valley startup founders, and Sungkyunkwan University students and professors participated and were able to grasp the trends of advanced research in life science of Standford University as well as creating synergy effects through open discussion sessions. As a result, this seminar expanded to an event involving world-renowned professors and Korean universities.
Great scholars who carries out advanced research from all over the world will be attending the seminar in the second semester. Ten scholars, including Kwon Hyung-bae, a professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Jeong Jae-woong, dean of the Department of Clinical Cancer Biology at Cleveland, Lee Hak-ho, a professor of Harvard Medical School, Lee Jin-hyung, a professor of bio-engineering at Stanford University, and Joo Chul-min, a professor of engineering at Delft University of the Netherlands, will be giving lectures.
This seminar is regarded as a good exmaple of the advantages of online lectures. Professors and students are time and place independent and discussions take place after time-consuming research presentations. There is no time limit for discussion allowing in-depth discussions for as long as the participants want. Those who were unable to attend real-time video seminars are able to watch the recorded video. Also, these online seminars did not require as much money as offline seminars. Students and professors from participating universities are able to attend the seminar via their smartphones or PCs.
Lee Sang-gu, dean of Sungkyunkwan University's Faculty of Natural Science, who organized the seminar, said, "You can easily listen to the lectures of world-class scholars in the laboratory or at home and listen to what you want to know right away," adding, "Compared to past invitation lectures, which cost a lot of money, such as accommodation and airfare."
