We were joined by students in India and Japan in our first discussion session.
Discussion sessions are a great way for English-learning students to practice speaking, and for all members to share ideas and learn from diverse perspectives!
At discussion sessions, it's all faces, no screen–we pose questions about important world issues and debate for an hour!
ACE used to host zoom panels in previous years, but we have decided to switch exclusively to discussion sessions so every member has a chance to share their ideas. Feel free to read more about zoom panels and check out past sessions!
During the unusual summer of 2020, ACE began its worldwide Zoom panel series...
Students from all over the world joined us in discussing topics like music, mental health, and art in English
Amy's presentation about art during the second Zoom panel session
Veronica's presentation about mental health during the officer-only rehearsal
During each panel, we have two speakers–ACE officers/members–who lead the panel with topics of their interest
To encourage discussion, Zoom panels are very interactive: cameras should be on, almost every slide elicits deep conversation, and many questions are posed (Socratic Style!)

Zoom Panel #4: Presenters: Robin Yu, a student from Chicago, Illinois, and Anthony Qin, president of ACE. We discussed 3-D modeling as a hobby, and music.
