The upcoming Kyoto University course Evolution of the Human Sociality: A Quest for the Origin of Our Social Behavior on edX has already been attracting attention, and will be offered by the President of Kyoto University, a world-leading primatologist himself!
President Juichi Yamagiwa is inviting select learners of his MOOC to Kyoto University to participate in the 60th PRIMATES Conference, sponsored by the Japan Monkey Centre. Learners will meet President Yamagiwa and students and faculty members of Kyoto University in January 2016.
In order to be considered as a candidate for this prize, learners will need to officially register for the course and also participate in a task-based competition, the details of which will be announced within the course. Finalists will be given an opportunity to present at the course event held at Kyoto University (via online if participating from outside of Japan) on Dec. 9, 2015. The event will be webcast to the world via video streaming.
Anyone who registers for this course will be qualified to enter. The task will be presented in the first two weeks of the course. Please make sure to register for the course no later than the first week of this course, if you do not want to miss out on this exceptional opportunity!
