Students are given an opportunity to review one's personal values, values of their culture and values of their faith. They share what they have thought of in terms of growing in values of TRUTH, GOODNESS, BEAUTY and HOLINESS, while also examining the situation in their own countries, as to how Value Education is promoted in the educational institutions. Students from respective ACUCA member countries and region are required to produce and deliver a 15-minute PPT presentation.
Student representatives from each of ACUCA countries shall coordinate together in order to produce a single paper. The details of the presentation and the paper will be announced from ACUCA Student Camp Planning Committee after the registration. We will e-mail to all student representatives participating in the camp. After the paper has been produced, each country must delegate reporters who will give the presentation at the camp. Each presentation should be approximately 15-minutes in duration, to be followed by a 5 to 10 minute 'Question and Answer' session. Fu Jen Catholic University will provide the necessary projector and computer with the Microsoft Office software.
