On 13-16 May, EASTEM partner universities gathered in Uppsala to get to work on developing a course for lecturers to teach in a more student-centered way (Work Package 2: Training lecturers in student-centered competence development).
Participants shared their ideas and experiences and discussed how to combine these best practices into one single idea for how a training of the trainers (ToT) course may look like. During the week in Uppsala, EASTEM partners also had workshops on how to define and assess quality indicators in our project. We also had the honour to receive H.E. Mr. Bagas Hapsoro, Ambassador of Indonesia; H.E. Mrs. Thi Phuong Dung Doan, Ambassador of Vietnam; H.E. Mr. Soonthorn Chaiyindeepum, Ambassador of Thailand; as well as Mrs. Mary Borromeo Hedfors, Trade & Investment Promotion Officer of the Philippine Trade & Investment Center for a panel discussion and mingle event on how we could enhance our cooperation with Embassies for greater impact in partner countries. Furthermore, EASTEM partners got the chance to network with capacity-building project GECKO and with the International Staff Training Week participants coming to Uppsala University as part of the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) scheme. The EASTEM WP 2 teams will meet again in Bangkok in November this year to finalize the development of the ToT course.
