Essay: The function of research at university. 教育場における研究の役割




The main actors of a university are its students. By placing the research as a “tool”, one can obtain effective learning for students to grow. The university systematically supports the growth of students. The lab (research group) provides a mechanism for students to create knowledge and skills by themselves. Advice from literature and supervisor is important, but it is only a clue. The knowledge and skills must be obtained through students’ direct experience (equivalent to experiments). It is the same as it is necessary to practice while falling to “learn” how to ride a bicycle.
