オックスフォード通信(291/74)i-Seminar:第16回卒業研究発表会

18期生の卒業研究発表会が開催されました。

次期4回生の19期生の皆さんも司会やタイムキーパーとしてヘルプに入ってくれました。リハーサルの効果もあり、それ以上に大学生活最後のプレゼンテーションという意気込みが功を奏して、これまでにない大成功の卒論発表会となりました(卒業研究ですが、若ゼミでは卒論を書いていますので伝統的に卒論発表会としています)。(ひとりの持ち時間は15分、内、11分を発表、4分を質疑応答、5分を入れ替え)

ただ、この発表会には問題が3点ありました。

  1. 発表会場にWifiが通っていない
  2. ゼミメンバー数が学科随一のため途中から2会場で同時進行となる
  3. イギリス=日本の時差が8時間、開始時間の午前10時がオックスフォードで午前1時

問題は解決できるものです。

  1. ソフトバンクが提供している1日Wifiパックを2会場分、都合3日(前日、当日、返却日)借り上げる→Hさんがピックアップ・返却の労を取ってくれる
  2. ゼミメンバーを2会場に分けて、2日以上から同時中継をしてもらい、iPhoneとMacBook Proで同時にオックスフォードで視聴する
  3. 一晩徹夜すればいいだけの問題なので気合と体力で乗り切る

実際、スムーズに進めることができたと思っています。
全18名、一人一人に質問もすることができました。音声が聞こえにくい状況では、LINEに質問を上げて、交替で代読してくれました。以下は質問の一例です。
