College of Education hosts last batch of SEA Teacher Project

The UST College of Education hosted the last batch of the participants for the Pre-Service Student Exchange in Southeast Asia (SEA Teacher) Project from Valaya Alongkorn Rajabhat University (VRU) in Thailand. The month-long teaching internship, held from November 6 to 26, 2023 allowed the participants to conduct classroom observations, teaching assistantships, and demonstration teaching at the UST Education High School, the laboratory school of the College.

The participants also attended special classes in Filipino language and culture for a deeper sense of appreciation of the identity of their host country.

Before VRU, the College also hosted student teachers from Mulawarman University, University of Bengkulu, and Universitas Sebales Maret in Indonesia; Lampang Rajahbat University in Thailand; and Dong Thap University in Vietnam for the 9th Batch of the SEA Teacher Project that commenced in August 2023.

Student teachers from UST were also hosted by the said partner institutions.

In its 9th year, SEA Teacher Project is organized by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) Secretariat, a regional intergovernmental organization established in 1965 among governments of Southeast Asian countries to promote regional cooperation in education, science, and culture.
