For 28 days starting November 18th, eight others and I will be able to have the once in a lifetime oppurtunity to travel to XiZhou as part of the Microcampus trip. A huge part of the months leading up to and during Microcampus is the inquiry project. This is why it is important to find an inquiry project which you will really enjoy, but that is also the reason why it was hard to choose a good inquiry project. I looked at the list of inquiry projects and I deleted all the ones which I knew I did not want to do, so I ended up with seven.
In Phase 0, I decided what my final topic would be. After some time of thoughtful consideration, I chose Healthcare/Wellness as experienced by locals as my inquiry project. I will be looking into the degree of blending of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine, as well as the effects of TCM. Right now, I am on Phase 1, where I will be learning more about my topic, getting a chance to create important questions, as well as researching our topic a little bit more.
In Phase 1, I created some big questions which will help guide my research for when I am in XiZhou. Now, in Phase 2, I will be finding valuable resources which will hopefully guide me to commendable results.
I will be doing Healthcare/Wellness as experienced by locals, a topic which I find very interesting, as my inquiry project. Back in Phase 0, I chose my what my inquiry project would be, and I also explained my process of how I chose it, as well as explaining why I am not doing the other two that I chose.
Back in Phase 0, we chose our what topic our inquiry projects would be. In Phase 1, we thought about and created some questions to fuel our learning process in Xizhou. In Phase 2, we found helpful resources.
My name is Julia J. and I am an Alumni of the "Ultimate" Microcampus group. Microcampus has been an amazing experience and I am sure that everyone who is an Alumni is missing the blue skies and fresh air which Xizhou has to offer.
