Many interesting experiences were recounted during the course implementation process, the students looked back on their journey through two symbols "rose" and "thorn". There were shares about teamwork conflicts, lack of ideas, loss of motivation,... and through that, they learned many new skills such as time management, risk management, internal conflicts solving skills, division of work or perseverance to the end. Someone even shared: "I thought I wouldn't give a presentation because I'm quite shy, but luckily I decided to volunteer to give a presentation because if I didn't do it, I wouldn't have a chance to know if I could do it or not, so that's why I'm standing here..." Finally, all students shared that their experiences in the past subjects were memorable and worthy of respect.
Besides that thorniness, "roses" are something worth receiving after efforts, many creative ideas have received praise from lecturers. Ms. Ly Dan Thanh could not hide her pride when witnessing the excellent work of UEF students, witnessing them studying and applying knowledge in a meaningful way.
