I liked your session, which was engaging, and had a good pace. The topic was certainly adequate and timely.
In terms of format, I liked the way you used power-point slides,which were colorful and succinct. The way you responded to people's questions every now and then was effective, and generated comments and engagement.
In terms of the content, you wove together personal stories, and did a good job drawing specific comparisons with students from Japan, as well as with international students, in general. Like you, I believe one's cultural background informs to a large degree one's way of doing things; I also believe that giving and receiving feedback ought to be one of those aspects taught within higher education courses that prepare future educators. In my experience, not many colleagues have opportunities to learn these aspects of teaching and learning.
I appreciated the way in which you shared stories and the values in them , and your ideas of demonstrating empathy for all learners.
Lastly, your approach to asking questions for clarification from participants was also adequate, and it illustrated the need to being mindful of diversity.
Thank you for your presentation!
