“Best Practices in MUN Simulations”
Welcome to the 3rd annual Global Negotiation Symposium at Kobe City University of Foreign Studies. Held concurrently with the 10th Annual International Japan University English Model United Nations (JUEMUN), June 21-23, 2019.
As well as featured speakers (TBA) and an opportunity to do a faculty lunch time Q&A session with the JUEMUN Guest Speaker ILO Director Akiko Taguchi, we are hoping that all of you will consider participating in one of the two scheduled poster sessionsduring the conference.
This year’s GNS theme is: “Best Practices in MUN Simulations”
You are encouraged to share practices that you have used or have observed as faculty advisors that you feel are most helpful in the delegate preparation process.
Here are just a few examples to get your imagination working on the many poster presentation topics possible:
Supporting student research before MUN events
Principles for preparing MUN speeches
Speech-making do’s and don’ts
Position paper writing—how to get started
Training sessions—suggested timelines for advisors
Building autonomy in MUN delegates
Putting critical thinking skills to use in delegate preparation
Getting students interested in joining MUN events
Bringing MUN into the high school or broader community
Assessment in MUN: How to bring out the best in delegate behavior
If you are interested, please send your poster presentation title and a short 25-30 word abstract to Donna Tatsuki firstname.lastname@example.org June 15th. I will let presenters know which session they will be featured at (Friday at tea break or Saturday dinner time) once I see the range of topics. In any case, the posters will be on display all weekend to encourage informal discussions beyond the set poster session slots.
After GNS 2019 we will be soliciting papers on the “Best Practices in MUN Simulations”theme and based on the poster session presentations for a special publication. More details and deadlines TBA.
