In August, the Pioneer Fish together with Debate Club of FPT University held a meeting to learn about Debate – the meeting attracted more than 20 members of PiFi and FPT Debate club with many exciting activities
Like presentation, Debate is a necessary skill in communication, associates with critical thinking and has high interaction. Moreover, in education, the skills actually useful for learning, building stance, acquiring knowledge … If you do not have a good debate, it will become a row, an attack… This is not just a phenomenon among young people, but bad for the society.
Therefore, Pioneer Fish organize activities to learn about rhetorical skills to encourage self-confidence, improve communication and critical thinking, analyze logically and solve problems for students
The activity took place at the headquarters of CSDS with many activities such as: warm-up games (introduce and familiarize members of the two clubs), learn about the debate (concepts, laws debate, critical thinking skill for debate), debate two topics (“whether the university should be built on the outskirts of the city or not?” and “Choose careers based on hobby or social needs?”)
Typically, there are 2 teams; each consists of 3 members arguing about the same subject, Affirmative team and Negative team
In addition, one time-keeper and 4 judges participates in the debate
Having clear understanding of the law debate 3 vs. 3, the teams have 45 minutes to prepare the ideas, evidence for their argument
The debate was very lively and exciting with 2 main components: a section of each team member and the FAQ by representatives of each team
With incisive reasoning and convincing presentation, both teams gave the audience interesting ideas, sharing and experience debate around the topics
Pioneer Fish would like to give thank to FPT University’s Debate Club and wish the club grows more and more to help students understand rhetorical skills better and have the opportunity to enhance critical thinking for the study and the future job.
