以上, 是今夏symposium的主題及活動辦法, 根據主題, 我選了"E-waste: The Problems and the Solutions"作為我的報告題目!

不知道大家還有沒有印像, 七月底前的那兩星期我簡直是忙瘋了, 那時主要在忙的就是這個報告, 和一篇同樣主題卻長達11頁的research paper! 雖然已經過快一個月了, 還是在此作一下紀錄~

 
這是我們Academic Discussion and Presentation的老師-Nicole! 他是今年5月畢業的TESOL學姐! 他在向所有的來賓介紹研討會規則! 一共分三個會議室同時進行, 一共十個演講者/十個主題!



這場研討會是開放式的, 任何人都可以來參加, 沒想到來的人真是不少!



簡單介紹後大家就各自到分配好的教室裡作演講前的準備&等待聽眾進場


我們這間的主題除了我的e-waste以外, 還有小哈的醫療資訊系統, 和Eisuke的聯合國統一防禦系統


我覺得這個研討會最難的部份是最後的Q&A, 很難預期聽眾聽完後會有什麼問題, 小哈遇到一個非洲來的聽眾, 問: 這醫療資訊系統要如何應用/幫助第三世界國家? 小哈臨場反應很棒, 回答得超完美!!



日本人Ryo不知道算幸還不幸, 他的演講因為是落單最後一場, 所以有最多的觀眾 (主題: 水資源的重要)



痛苦的研討會結束後有茶會... 是很美式的那種: 起士+餅乾, 沙拉, 水果, 汽水...



小合照, 天氣很冷!
