I made the following presentation “A Workshop ‘TEKUTEKU’: Creation and Preservation of Local Information Linking Outdoor Activities to Public Libraries” at the Conference of the Fourth International Workshop on Regional Innovation Studies 2012(IWRIS2012) at Mie University.
(The Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Regional Innovation Studies 2012(IWRIS2012), pp. 60-63, October 11-12)*.
“TEKUTEKU” is an adverb in Japanese meaning an appearence of a person walking at a regular speed.
I named my project “TEKUTEKU”, which was besed on walking projects that citizens walk around the town and discover new attractions of the town, then the participants make a booklet collected new findings of the town and donate it to the local libraries.
The workshops have ever been held 10 times in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo Metropolitan and Matsusaka city, Mie Prefecture.
For my abstract to be peer reviewed, I presented it at this time.
After l looked back on my presentation, I have reflected on my project and feel it needs improvement.
I am thankful for the opportunity to improve myself. I want to apply what I have learned from presenting at the conference to my future project.
