Join us Online for AURS7!
Tuesday, March 22 & Wednesday, March 23, 2022 | Tokyo, Japan and Online
The 7th Asian Undergraduate Research Symposium (AURS7) will be held online from Tokyo, Japan. This two-day-long online event gives participants the opportunity to join other engaged undergraduate students from across the globe in an international and interdisciplinary course that aims to enhance their oral communication skills through a series of challenging and exciting online seminars and activities.
Present your research project to a group of keen and like-minded peers, academics, and professionals. Learn from their feedback and advice and in turn, develop your presentation skills, broaden your professional network, and forge new friendships.
Day 1 focuses on shaping and presenting ideas – how to formulate your thoughts and structure your presentations in ways that are engaging and easy to understand, and communicate your intentions with maximum clarity and impact.
Day 2 focuses on the hard skills that allow you to operate as an effective communicator during presentations. These techniques are invaluable in academic, business and everyday contexts, and will allow you to convey your ideas in ways that will leave strong impressions on your audience.
Participants will receive an Oral Communication Diploma from the IAFOR Academy at the end of the Symposium.
Facilitators: Dr Grant Black, Dr Joseph Haldane, Christian Alexander Klinke
Language Requirement: The symposium will be conducted in English.
Participants should have an Intermediate to Advanced EFL/ESL proficiency level.
