Inter-University Collaboration to Enhance Educational Practices in Cambodia

Session Description
This presentation describes a case in which Japanese university student volunteers collaboratively work together to visit the Teacher Training Center (TTC) in Cambodia to introduce new approaches for teaching English. Before visiting Cambodia, the students closely communicated with Cambodian TTC teachers to prepare a schedule of activities during their visit. The students introduced active learning methods such as games, simulations, dance, and improvisation for teaching elementary school students. The possibilities and limitations of this project will be discussed.
