The College of Education participated in the Southeast Asia Student Pre-Service Teacher Exchange Program (SEA Teacher Project) 5th Batch held on January 28-February 18, 2018.
The project caters pre-service student teachers whose major are in Math, Science, English and Pre-school to have the opportunity of conducting their practicum within Southeast Asian countries.
It aims to enable pre-service student teachers to develop their teaching skills and pedagogy, to encourage the pre-service student teachers to practise their English skills, and to allow the pre-service student teachers to gain a broader regional and world view.
Five foreign student-teachers were received by the CLSU namely, Farida Ulfa (English), Kartika Rahayu Utami (English), from Pakuan University (UNPAK) – Indonesia, Risman Alifin (Mathematics) from Halu Oleu University (UHO), Indonesia, and Kotchapan Srikhamchon (Mathematics) Warangkana Wichiansri (General Science) from Khon Kaen University (KKU) – Thailand.
