The host was Dr. Umawathy, a minister of Higher Education in Malaysia! In the conversation, she dropped interesting details about the national college system of that country, which is very different from the federalized and public/private mishmash in America. Her Zoom meeting's moderator was Daniel Shen from his office in Indonesia. And here I was listening and watching and occasionally typing comments from the other side of the planet!!
That set the tone for the whole day: 2 later presenters were joining us from Saudi Arabia, and we also had a physics teacher who Zoomed from Mexico. The window of Participants indicates that we have a global audience, all of whom presumably has a firm grasp of the English language to follow along. (All the presenters have shown excellent language skills, which is just one more reminder that I have wasted my life.)
2 more days!
