SEGi University, a high-profile Malaysian college group, is starting to offer training programs for Myanmar teachers in Yangon, according to its local partner Jenko Centre for Education Excellence.
Towards the end of 2012, international universities are entering Myanmar to explore their new markets, while helping promote the education of the country.
“SEGi University has been organising seminars and workshops in Yangon for a long time. The university is well recognised by its government and has won several awards,” the manager of Jenko Centre said.
The joint venture training programs between Jenko and SEGi College Subang Jaya are aimed to improve the teaching skills of Myanmar teachers including those who are at the state schools, universities and private schools.
“Lecturers in the programs will be those Master degree holders from SEGi. We will charge US$745 per candidate for the 12 day program of 96 hours,” Jenko’s manager said.
The programs, which has been planned to start during this month, cover such topics as Plan, Organize and Deliver Group-Based Learning, Plan Assessment Activities and Processes, Use of Technology in Education, Managing and Leading Educational Settings, Educational Psychology and Classroom Behavior.
